           Summary: `<a ping>`'s `Ping-From` implementation doesn't match
                    the spec.
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: Page Loading
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: mkwst at chromium.org

According to http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/links.html#hyperlink-auditing `<a ping>` should send `Ping-From` HTTP header in addition to a `referer` header when pinging an origin distinct from the initial document (when the initial document wasn't loaded over HTTPS.

Currently, WebKit only sends the referrer header.

I'm not really convinced that the spec is correct here, as the additional header seems completely redundant, but we should probably follow the letter of the spec here. Patch for review in a moment.
