I support Anne's participation and contributions to the discussion;
same-origin restrictions and the use of CORS is orthogonal to WOFF and
can be discussed separately. I'm undecided whether SOR/CORS should be
part of the WOFF efforts, and I'm sceptical to the argument that CORS
should only be used to lift restrictions put in for privacy reasons.
But this is the time to bring the arguments to the table, no?
