Actually the testability is the most important aspect. Could you provide 
some tests that show when IE switches from "uninitialised" to "loading" 
and so on? At the moment the spec is as close as I could get to what IE 
actually does. (MSDN is woefully inaccurate when it comes to these things, 
so I wouldn't pay too much attention to it.)
