Nope. That's a bug. The load should not actually be started in
initialize: instead, it should be started in moveTo, if it's not yet
loaded. Layer.GML does this, Layer.GeoRSS and Layer.Text do not. A patch
for this would be great. Please open a ticket -- if you plan to work on
it, or work with someone else on it, pleaes put it in 2.6 and I'll
review when it's completed.
