Thanks. So I understand it is the HTML specification reference
that provides details on this behaviour for the XHR spec. 
I'll look further there as its fetching section by itself 
doesn't directly express the relationship between synchronous 
and a stopped event loop (although as a programmer I can infer
this relationship).
