Why? That information could be in the resource. Or if you e.g.
implement your own browser-like thing that accepts arbitrary URLs you
would want something similar.

You might also want to do same-origin requests that do not include the
overhead of Cookie / Origin / Referrer headers. HTML already has
rel=noreferrer for that. We should expose functionality like that in
the low-level API.
