Hello WhatWG

There is a need to obtain the HTTP status code for the page itself from

I think this would be a great feature to save additional traffic in an
already congested internet. Because I see lots of queries made by
XMLHttpRequest solely to obtain the HTTP status code of the same URL.

If the global browser variable (JavaScript) would already hold the
status code, then these queries would become obsolete and the internet
becomes a bit less blocked.

Let me know how to proceed with my proposal within WhatWG.
