I agree.

I believe WebKit is sync for javascript, data and empty URLs. Being sync for
these cases is so much more convenient for web developers that have to deal
with iframes. Especially as we are starting to add APIs for using iframes in
lighter-weight contexts (e.g. seamless), this will become more important.

Are there any disadvantages to making these cases sync?
