It is not possible to have only one XHR document. There is already a
published CR for XHR1, which will always remain at [1].

[1] http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/CR-XMLHttpRequest-20100803/

The question is what to do with that branch. Moving [1] to a WG Note would
help resolve confusion about the status of that branch, not create more
confusion. The summary section of the note could clearly explain the status
of that work, and how it is to be superseded by the new XHR2 work.

I support publishing the note.
