So we discussed this a bit more today in the office.

Our (Blink's) current opinion is that we have no particular objections
to the proposal, but it's low priority for us.  We probably won't get
around to implementing anything until there's sufficient author
pressure to do so.  As a result, we also haven't done any detailed
review or analysis of the proposal yet, tho, so we may find issues in
the future when this becomes important to us.  Our surface review so
far, tho, doesn't send up any red-flags.

Our prioritization could change with sufficiently convincing
use-cases, and we would love to see more and more detailed use-cases
presented for this. Sample code and descriptions of what's expected
and what's achieved would be great, especially focusing on common
scenarios like slow networks.

We're most interested in solving the use-case of "make page loading
feel more responsive".  We really like the stuff that Opera Coast does
(switch to a blank with the favicon throbbing in the center until the
entering page is ready), and would like to make sure something like
that is possible, either with this proposal or something related.

That all said, I have some feedback about the syntax and such that
I'll send soonish.
