Are you referring to "If there is no previous document, this attribute
must return the same value as fetchStart"?

As ppi@ noted in his doc: "In fact, however, the HTML spec requires
every new browsing context to load the about:blank document at
initialization, therefore there is always a previous document and this
particular condition never applies." [1]

That note is incorrect, because this condition applies to the about:blank document that's loaded at initialization!  That's the whole point.  We've covered all this ground before, on this mailing list...

Ok, think I found your previous note about it: How about...

"If there is no previous document, the time origin must be equal to the time when the [attempt to obtain the resource is made][1] (step 14 of navigation algorithm)."
