[Bug 8256] [gs] Is form.submit() async or sync? I don't see where this is defined. From my reading it should be sync, as it should just run the steps to completion.

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The answer is "both"; it starts off synchronous, and goes "into the
background" later. The spec seems well-defined already. When submit() is
invoked, the submission algorithm is invoked, which means running through a
bunch of steps, and which ends with calling the Navigate algorithm, which
itself runs through a bunch of steps, including some that switch to being
asynchronous. I don't really see what needs clarifying. Just walk through the
steps in the spec and it all just falls out, as far as I can tell.
