Re: [xhr] statusText is underdefined

Is this really a problem? HTTP defines the form and encoding of the status
text, and WebIDL/ES defines the form and encoding of DOMString. Adding an
explicit conversion definition seems redundant and overspecified. I would
argue the same for all other cases in the spec where it calls out an
explicit (and unnecessary) conversion.
