Actually you are right, I agree it shouldn't be optional for conformant
implementations. Of course, some implementations may choose to leave it out

That's a great idea. We can define the behavior of the callback and make it
part of the test runner. We don't even need a name in that case, let's keep
it as simple as possible. There's one such callback. If it should be used,
we simply set a "useDocumentLoader" flag to true. The reason for not using
documentLoader directly is to allow implementations in different programming
languages. The definition of that callback defines what it returns for a
number of URLs and what happens for unknown URLs.
