A ping request is a special network request. We should not support subclassing a ping handle because there are security/privacy implications with respect to redirect handling and including credentials/authentication with a ping request. Such aspects should not be changed or require careful consideration if changed.

For completeness, the HTML ping attribute and corresponding ping request that should be created is described in section "Hyperlink auditing" in the HTML standard: <https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/semantics.html#hyperlink-auditing>.
