Currently, Web Inspector does not respect the HTTP status message (which comes with HTTP status code). It looks up the predefined set of status messages from the status code (as in Resource.js).
This design introduces a couple of problems:
- It cannot handle the status code which has potentially multiple status texts. For example, "101 Switching Protocols" from HTTP/1.1 vs "101 WebSocket Protocol Handshake" from WebSocket protocol spec. This will be a problem when I'll merge a patch that displays the info for WebSocket in the Web Inspector.
- It cannot handle unknown status codes. In the past I saw a web server that returned a response like "490 <Vendor-specific status text>" (unfortunately I don't remember what service was doing this). In this case the Inspector shows "490 undefined", which does not sound desirable to me. I admit this is a rare case that will not happen often in the wild, though.
Can we use the response text that the server returns?
I think thats a good idea. Like XHR's `statusText` property.

Thanks for fixing this!
Thank you for review!
I've found a typo in ChangeLog ("HTTP attributes" -> "HTML attributes").
Ukai-san, could you commit this patch after the typo is fixed?
