No, I'm saying that browser vendors will refuse to implement it
because it will break existing sites en masse and thereby anger their
users.  Ideally I think it should have been possible to restrict
cross-domain image loads from the start, but I don't see any way to do
that *now* without breaking too many existing sites for browsers to be
willing to go along with it.
