Yes and no. :-)  These comments (and the sync code) were added in the
patch for https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53785. But the async
API still works: WebPage still handles the async response, and
WebPageProxy will still send the response message if the listener is
called after returns. Note also the fact that the message returns a
boolean and the action, the boolean indicates whether the reply is
sync or async.

I'm investigating more about the original issue, maybe we could find a
way to fix the problem when using the async case, possibly even
getting rid of the sync case.
