  This is intentional behavior - there is no HTTP status for non-HTTP
requests, so we don't fake any. Since there's by definition no Web content
using file:// XMLHttpRequests, it seems appropriate to keep our behavior for
Dashboard compatibility.

  AFAIK, requests to non-http resources haven't been specified by anyone
