In my case this would be information if it originates from XmlHttp object but mgoetz on #qt-labs suggested other information like type of a resource; script, image etc.

There is no such tags currently. I also think that would be useful.

Such information is needed when implementing filters for AdBlock, this 
cannot be done with the current implementation.

For example ( see http://adblockplus.org/en/filters ):
  * script — external scripts loaded via HTML script tag
  * image — regular images, typically loaded via HTML img tag
  * xmlhttprequest — requests started by the XMLHttpRequest object

Using http://doc.trolltech.com/4.5/qnetworkrequest.html#Attribute-enum
is one possible way of doing this. QtWebKit would tag the request depending on the origin of the request.
This same problem was solved in the case of originating frames at: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29975
