Other ideas (also suffix variants instead of prefix variants):

- GuestXMLHttpRequest
Suggested by Mark originally. We now envision more use cases than  
guest code, however, "guest" is also the traditional name for an  
unprivileged account.

- UnprivilegedXMLHttpRequest (or abbreviate to NoPrivs)
- NoAuthorityXMLHttpRequest (or abbreviate to NoAuth, though that may  
seem like "no authentication")
- NoCredentialsXMLHttpRequest (or abbreviate to NoCred)

Can anyone else think of ideas? I tried to mentally fill in sentences  
like, "I don't want to do this as root, I want to use a/an _______  
account" or "I don't want to be logged into site X, I want to be  
________ when I visit it."
