Well, since the question was originally asked by me, yes it would directly
benefit my site by allowing me to write cleaner code (for instance, the
menu.svg can sit at www.codedread.com and can be self-contained and the
referencing page can send in parameters at the markup level).  I suppose that
won't be considered important enough though.

At the moment, I'm using a Unix softlink at blog.codedread.com to the menu.svg,
which obviously wouldn't work if things were truly on a different domain.  I
haven't investigated query parameters or postMessage() - do they work in all

Seems really weird to me that we have parameters that you can send to objects,
but only the objects located in the same domain can actually access those
parameters.  But I thought that Java and Flash plugins can actually get at
those parameters - I guess it just leaves native content out in the cold?  That
seems even weirder...
