If you have more information on what kind of confusion there was
that'd be great. I'd like Fetch to be as clear as possible.

Can you at least remove the bit about headers and redirects? There's
no platform API that can configure not to follow redirects so there
should not be any confusion there.

When there's a 407 response, whether there's going to be an
authentication dialog and whether we want to avoid that in this case
because the site might already have gone away. In general we don't
really have a good story for this. Mostly curious how sendBeacon()
implementations are handling this.

In step 10 you create a new request. Request has a field called
context: For
sendBeacon() it should be set to the ping value.
