           Summary: Clarify that "global unique identifier" is an alias
                    for "null" (for all CORS-purposes)
           Product: WebAppsSec
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CORS
        AssignedTo: annevk@opera.com
        ReportedBy: odinho@opera.com
         QAContact: dave.null@w3.org

In the redirect steps:

http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/cors/raw-file/tip/Overview.html#redirect-steps

> 6. If the request URL origin is not same origin with the original URL origin,
>    set source origin to a globally unique identifier.

It could instead say:

> 6. If the request URL origin is not same origin with the original URL origin,
>    set source origin to a globally unique identifier (which would serialize
>    to 'null').

Just written better and nicer ;-)


Although it'd be cool to just do

    s/a globally unique identifier/the string 'null'/g

but that might be a bit too radical ;-)
