[Bug 9603] If the origin parameter does not match the Document origin the Referer header should also be excluded. Alternatively a way to omit the Referer header would be good for CORS.

To omit the Referer header, you just have to say that the Referer header isn't
sent. (See for instance the "noreferrer" link type, which does this.) There's
not much more I can do in HTML5, since HTTP doesn't provide suitable hooks
here.
