Can you send me a link to "the web security model" please, somehow 
I've managed never to see that spec or any definition of it. 
(embarrassing!)

I'd certainly be interested in reading all about why Cookies and 
stateful HTTP usage are good for security and to be adopted heavily, 
whilst reading the comments in a publicly available javascript 
embedded from a "cross-origin" is big security concern to be prevented 
at all costs. Should be a great read and very enlightening.

Thanks much for pointing it out,

Nathan
