Spec should cover stopping parsing on location.href = "foo"

It seems that at least firefox and (historical) WebKit stop parsing whenever a
scheduled location change is made, such as through setting window.location.href

This is not directly discussed in:

does imply that parsing should stop if we get all the way to unloading the
document.   However existing browsers seem to stop parsing regardless of
whether the load is secure or successful, immediately after location.href is

See https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43328 for how we had to add this
quirk back into WebKit after moving to the HTML5 parser.
