Hi all,

if I read 6.10 correctly it has a special case for about:blank
documents only when loading a new document to a context which has only 
about:blank document. But that isn't quite enough, I think.
Traditionally (IE/Gecko) about:blank documents haven't been put to
session history. Opera and Webkit seem to handle this case differently
(though, not exactly the same way).

Since session history handling follows IE's behavior pretty
closely in other cases, I think it would make sense to define
about:blank handling too.
