Just as an update, I still plan to do this, but I'm currently waiting for 
browser vendors to more widely implement the existing Worker, 
SharedWorker, MessagePort, and PortCollection features before adding more 
features to this part of the spec. It would also be helpful to have 
confirmation from browser vendors that y'all actually _want_ cross-origin 
workers, before I spec it.
