No load event is dispatched for blocked frames, and therefore element collapsing does not work.

We stopped manually dispatching load events for blocked frames a while ago. The review documents that this isn't necessary, since Safari automatically dispatches those events for blocked frames. However, I just tested it on Safari 8 an 5.1, and with both versions of Safari no load event is dispatched.
