Actually that can indeed be done by wrapping the XHR object (or more cleanly, by specialising it). My concern here is that you then sort of have to support all manners of HTTP semantics if you want to do it "right" (for rather pedantic values of right), but on the other hand you reach 80/20 very quickly.
