Regarding dropping XHR, Marcos and I chatted about this [1] and since  
none of the functionality in the A+E spec actually requires XRR, I  
agree with the proposal to remove the related statement in Section 3.1.

Regarding the requirement ([2] below), I think it is a reasonable  
requirement for a Widget User Agent so I would keep it despite none  
of our existing specs in progress address it (ATM).
