Some rationale for the change as well:

1. It's easier to implement if one fires the suspend event when the network
stops being active, regardless of the reason. Specifically, it's annoying to
have to special-case the situation when the last HTTP request (using Range
header) happened to be the last piece to have the whole resource.

2. If one supports throwing away part of the cache, then having loaded all of
the resource would in a sense just be suspending, because one might later have
to resume buffering of evicted parts.

3. For page authors, it seems simpler to have a single event that always means
that the network is no longer active. For example, a small indicated (glowing
red sphere or some such) to indicate network activity would be easier to toggle
on/off. The alternative is checking networkState in the progress event handler.
