I support closing this issue.  As I read it, the API already allows multi-origin usage of keys, because keys are clonable.  

If that's not the case, then the document should specify that if keys are cloned across an origin boundary (e.g., through postMessage), then they will not work.  But that seems like unnecessary complication.

If there is no contribution, this feature will be put on hold and the ISSUE will be postponed, which means that our final deliverable might not embed any solution for it.
