It does not define what to do at page refresh, only history
traversal, as far as I can see.

I think you are missing the point I am describing. I don't know
if you develop Web Applications and are acquainted with the
workarounds I've mentioned (conversation ids etc), but if you 
don't then it is probably hard to see my point ;-).

Anyway, I respect your opinion that page refresh is enough
well-defined by RFC 2616 and the Opera implementation, and
doesn't need coverage in the HTML5 spec.
