If we had a place for storing information related to a document,
(do we?  There's talk about a "Hyperdoc" type in HTAnchor.c, but
it's never flushed out.), then the size (as a number) should be
put there.  Then all those browsers that currently give transfer
status in bytes could give it as a percentage.

A browser could implement a selection for http-served documents
which invokes a HEAD to find out this kind of information.  If
this info included the time changed, it could be compared against
the global history.
