I haven't changed this because the draft always lets the client send
the value "null".  This is a fail-safe so that the client can always
proceed even if it forgets what the origin ought to be.  Here you
should imagine some code close to the wire that adds an "Origin: null"
header if the request somehow got there without an Origin header.

I'd be more than happy if CORS referenced this draft.  Let me know if
there's anything I can do to make this easier for you.
