Answering myself, that could explain things :

        // Document loaders for the three phases of frame loading.
Note that while
        // a new request is being loaded, the old document loader may
still be referenced.
        // E.g. while a new request is in the "policy" state, the old
document loader may
        // be consulted in particular as it makes sense to imply
certain settings on the new loader.
        RefPtr<DocumentLoader> m_documentLoader;
        RefPtr<DocumentLoader> m_provisionalDocumentLoader;
        RefPtr<DocumentLoader> m_policyDocumentLoader;

please , could someone confirm ?
