https://developer.mozilla.org/En/DOM/Document.load is mozilla's documentation.  If author's used XHR it would work in both moz an webkit.

DOM 3 Load Save doesn't even include this interface anymore:

So I don't think we ever plan to support this.  Certainly it would be possible to implement this with a synchronous XHR.

There seems to be much site compatibility trouble because of Document.load (see e.g. bug 9063, bug 19914), so we may end up having to implement it.
