[Bug 12744] The crossdomain attribute named as such may prove an attractive talisman for copy-paste/cargocult authors, such that they start applying it on _any_ out of domain img regardless of CORS, especially when they see the no attribute string form <img crossdoma

Status: Did Not Understand Request
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: What's the attack scenario here? I would have set it implicitly on
all <img> elements if it wasn't for compatibility concerns, so I don't
understand why it would be bad for people to set it. In fact if anything, <img
crossdomain src="..."> is safer than <img src="..."> since it removes cookies
from the request.
