Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: I removed that mention of the "same-origin policy", since it really
wasn't helping anything, and replaced it with a more helpful brief statement
explaining the implications of doing this.

I haven't defined "same-origin policy" anywhere because I really have no idea
how to do so. The whole HTML spec plus other specs like CORS, Web Storage, the
Web Sockets protocol, etc, together describe the same-origin policy. It's not
something that can be summarised in a few paragraphs.
