navigator.connection.downlinkMax, wimax, and onchange

Add support for the downlinkMax attribute which provides the maximum theoretical bandwidth that the current connection can support. Also add "wimax" as a connection type. Also adds support for the connection.onchange event. The ontypechange event will be deprecated later.
