Part of Design documentation for rel=preload

The experimental pref now controls use of the code in bug 1594449, which as an incomplete implementation of preload as speculative load that cannot be turned on in the field - we announce support for rel=preload, but we don't fully implement it.

It's been decided we would not care about people that enabled the network.preload pref and allow some reasonable level of possible breakage for such users.

If there is no other major issue (like tests that enable the pref to cover the feature and massively break with this change) we can do the merge whenever we want.

Note: make sure to also update D68718.
