In reference to the other thread about discouraging synchronous XHR
(outside Workers), this change ended up being made in Gecko. (HTML
parsing in XHR still hasn't made its way to the Nightly channel, so
don't expect to see it quite yet.)

The side effect is that <meta> prescan doesn't happen in the
synchronous mode for text/html resources. This is displeasingly
inconsistent but makes sense if the sync mode is treated as an evil
legacy feature rather than as an evolving part of the platform.
