Media elements currently allow for cross-origin loads without explicit opt in
from the server they are requested from. So far this is similar to the img
element and ok. However, progress events are not limited in any way exposing
more information about the file on the other end than has been possible so far
with cross-origin loads. That information needs to be restricted somehow. Most
likely by using CORS as defense mechanism.
