Or we could avoid the whole thing and just have:

http://www.w3.org/TR/XMLHttpRequest/ redirect to: http://www.w3.org/TR/XMLHttpRequest2/

Better yet, dump the "2" version number and just have /XMLHttpRequest2/ point to /XMLHttpRequest/.  

Everything in 1 is in 2, so making a big deal out of this is a valuable waste of time justifying the decision.

There is no point in having "Level 1" and "Level 2" since there is no "Level 1"… there is just "XMLHttpRequest" :)
