Still there's some more question...

In  FrameLoader::continueLoadAfterNavigationPolicy method we have:

    if (formState) {
    } else {

However,  FrameLoader::continueLoadAfterWillSubmitForm(PolicyAction) 
just ignores its PolicyAction param
(assigned to PolicyUse by default). So, in case of submit (when the 
formState above is not null) it seems like
the client can cancel loading only by means of the following call:


made earlier on the stack. Then, what is the purpose of 
Could you please clarify it?

Thank you,
