FWIW, there was a bug filed about this:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=578995

This change makes a lot of sense, though.  Actually, I already suggested it in
bug 10169, but I'm not an implementer, so it didn't get anywhere.  (Which is
fine, although I should have prodded implementers about it as I said I would .
