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:

  Distinguishing "Embeddable" Versus "Readable" Web Resources Considered Harmful
  http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/roc/archives/2011/02/distinguishing.html

  Breaking Web Platform Consistency Considered Harmful

Although no comment was made during the last call period, some of the Webkit folks at Apple are apparently opposed to the use of 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.

Regards,
