According to the spec, the send() method of XmlHttpRequest objects
enable an internal 'send()' flag showing that the request has been
done, and not allowing to do several requests on the same XHR object,
although the current API with an open() method leads to think that's
possible. Due to this, I propose to allow to do several send() calls
on an open XHR object.

I know that the mayority of use cases are a simple one-shoot calls so
this request would be useless, but there are use cases like
JsonRPC-over-HTTP where it makes sense, so I think it would be a good
requeriment (and the most intuitive) that you could be able to do
several send() calls if it's defined a Connection Keep-Alive header.
