Fair point. I am still confused by the similarity of the names  
PerformanceNavigation and PerformanceNavigationTiming though, given that  
the interfaces are unrelated. Maybe use PerformanceLoadTiming,  
-MainPageTiming, -DocumentTiming or some such? Or maybe it is the  
PerformanceNavigation interface which is misnamed, perhaps it should be  
called PerformanceNavigationType?

For other issues, please see answer to Arvind's mail.
