Now I understand why it seemed to work for me. In my tests the file with
math was on the local computer, which is the Local Zone from IE
standpoint. This is why access across domains was enabled. When I
actually put it on the Web server, which is the Internet Zone, I got
"access denied" message, as you have predicted. The relevant page on
MSDN:

It only happens when the object is associated with the namespace
that is used with MathML via <?import>. Other <object> tags are
not affected and do not need to be removed. One could use
javascript to control the presence of <?import> tags, but it is
not necessary, because MathPlayer rendering works fine without any
<object> declarations.
