     * @param aLoadingNode
     *        The loadingDocument of the channel.
     *        The element or document where the result of this request will be
     *        used. This is the document/element that will get access to the
     *        result of this request. For example for an image load, it's the
     *        document in which the image will be loaded. And for a CSS
     *        stylesheet it's the document whose rendering will be affected by
     *        the stylesheet.
     *        If possible, pass in the element which is performing the load. But
     *        if the load is coming from a JS API (such as XMLHttpRequest) or if
     *        the load might be coalesced across multiple elements (such as
     *        for <img>) then pass in the Document node instead.
     *        For loads that are not related to any document, such as loads coming
     *        from addons or internal browser features, use null here.
     * @param aLoadingPrincipal
     *        The loadingPrincipal of the channel.
     *        The principal of the document where the result of this request will
     *        be used.
     *        This defaults to the principal of aLoadingNode, so when aLoadingNode
     *        is passed this can be left as null. However for loads where
     *        aLoadingNode is null this argument must be passed.
     *        For example for loads from a WebWorker, pass the principal
     *        of that worker. For loads from an addon or from internal browser
     *        features, pass the system principal.
     *        This principal should almost always be the system principal if
     *        aLoadingNode is null. The only exception to this is for loads
     *        from WebWorkers since they don't have any nodes to be passed as
     *        aLoadingNode.
     *        Please note, aLoadingPrincipal is *not* the principal of the
     *        resource being loaded. But rather the principal of the context
     *        where the resource will be used.
     * @param aTriggeringPrincipal
     *        The triggeringPrincipal of the load.
     *        The triggeringPrincipal is the principal of the resource that caused
     *        this particular URL to be loaded.
     *        Most likely the triggeringPrincipal and the loadingPrincipal are
     *        identical, in which case the triggeringPrincipal can be left out.
     *        In some cases the loadingPrincipal and the triggeringPrincipal are
     *        different however, e.g. a stylesheet may import a subresource. In
     *        that case the principal of the stylesheet which contains the
     *        import command is the triggeringPrincipal, and the principal of
     *        the document whose rendering is affected is the loadingPrincipal.
     * @param aSecurityFlags
     *        The securityFlags of the channel.
     *        Any of the securityflags defined in nsILoadInfo.idl
     * @param aContentPolicyType
     *        The contentPolicyType of the channel.
     *        Any of the content types defined in nsIContentPolicy.idl
     * @return reference to the new nsIChannel object
     *
     * Please note, if you provide both a loadingNode and a loadingPrincipal,
     * then loadingPrincipal must be equal to loadingNode->NodePrincipal().
     * But less error prone is to just supply a loadingNode.
     *
     * Keep in mind that URIs coming from a webpage should *never* use the
     * systemPrincipal as the loadingPrincipal.
