What about providing constants for the XMLHttpRequest states:

/* A class that provides constants for the readyState property of 
 * XMLHttpRequest. */
function CResponseStates() {
	this.UNINITIALIZED = 0; // open() has not been called yet
	this.LOADING = 1; // Request not yet made (send() not called)
	this.LOADED = 2; // Contact established with server and HTTP status code received
    this.INTERACTIVE = 3; // In Mozilla, called multiple times while response is fetched - every 4096 bytes of response
    this.COMPLETED = 4; // Response complete
ResponseStates = new CResponseStates();

I still don't understand what this would buy anyone over-and-above the high-level handlers we provide. If you want low-level XMLHTTP object status, that's fine, but it's not something that bind() should be in the explicit business of handling.
