My point is that since we do not have cross-origin restrictions for all  
those various other ways to load resources cross-origin (<link>, <script>,  
<img>, <video>, <audio>, <form>, <svg:image>, 'content',  
'background-image', 'list-style-image', 'cursor', and probably more) it  
does not make sense to impose such a restriction here.
