Feature rationale:

I work on uzbl[1] and I'd like to implement support for AdBlockPlus filter rules[2] for adblocking. The problem is that the rules specify that, e.g., they only apply for images, JS, or CSS files which WebKit doesn't offer at all. I'd also like to put some auditing in to drive the Lightbeam[3] code in uzbl.


ResourceRequest seemed like the best place since the ResourceLoader would otherwise need to get the information through some other path in places and notification of the reason would likely come through changed notification APIs (e.g., willSendRequest would need a reason parameter added to it). In WebKit2, the reason would need to get back to the UIProcess somehow and it seemed to fit there as well.

I can try to take a stab at moving it into the loader(s) itself.
