I'm not really convinced we need all of

   http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/UMP/

to handle the simple use case it is for. I think UMP can be layered on top  
of CORS by simply letting the origin be a unique identifier and always  
have the credentials flag be false. A new constructor could be used for  
XMLHttpRequest -- maybe called AnonXMLHttpRequest() -- to enable this  
behavior.

Since most people in the WG seem to think we should have both UMP and CORS  
this solution seems much more straightforward and practical.

Thoughts?
