I am in the process of rewriting parts of XMLHttpRequest Level 1 so that it matches reality better with respect to how to determine the origin and base URL of an XMLHttpRequest object. At the same time I'm also working on integrating it with the event loop model as defined in HTML5.

So far this has been taking quite a bit of time, but I'm getting closer. Once this is done I plan on merging the changes with XMLHttpRequest Level 2.

It seems that ISSUE-33 is about a limitation of Microsoft's implementation. I.e. invoking open() from within an event listener does not work. The issue was raised to gather feedback from Mozilla as both Opera and Apple are fine with allowing this.

I personally do not see a good reason to change the way event handling normally works here, but I'm open to feedback.

ISSUE-75 is something I'm working on right now. Not sure when it's finished, though I hope to have something to show relatively soon.

I have not looked at ACTION-12 yet.
