Well, we don't want four different proprietary solutions. It initially  
looked like this was going to be another XMLHttpRequest, but mostly thanks  
to Ian (if I remember correctly) it went throug the W3C. It also gives us  
wider input on the design and while there are constraints we have been  
able to make changes for the better, such as moving the allowed methods on  
the Access-Control / <?access-control?> mechanism and introducing the  
Access-Control HTTP header. And depending on who you ask today's change is  
also a good improvement.
