I should also point out that there's a much more nuanced discussion of same-origin restrictions in this pair of blog entries by Robert O'Callahan of Mozilla and Anne van Kesteren of Opera:

Subject: apple and same-origin restrictions

David, Julio, is this something you were aware of?  It would have been nice to have these comments made publicly during the last call period.
