I am not sure this is the case. Seems to me that the CORS API is more
powerful than UM (in that stuff that can be done by UM can be done by
CORS). In the end, if W3 pushes out both UM and CORS, why would a
developer use UM ? I imagine most would end up using CORS (even if
they can achieve their goals with UM), just because its easier and
quicker.
