            Bug ID: 28117
           Summary: Clarify timeout in case Preflighted CORS requests
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW

The spec needs to specify how timeout should behave when there is Preflight
OPTIONS request. It seemed logical to assume xhr.timeout = timeout (OPTIONS +
ACTUAL) request

The way browsers implement is non intuitive. Say I set timeout as 1000 (1sec).
The browser sets 1000ms timeout for OPTIONS and 1000ms timeout for ACTUAL
request. 

Clarifying that in the spec would enable browsers to implement the right way.
