I made a few simple demos (e.g. the one I e-mailed). Good enough to figure out what is going on, but not really PASS/FAIL test case quality.

Having said that, most of this is already covered to great extent by the test suite I had developed before, but the specification was just not quite as clear on these matters as it could be. HTML5 provides a whole bunch of quite low-level terminology that explains the various concepts in great detail and XMLHttpRequest is currently not making use of some of the more "recent" additions.
