For example, if you send a ArrayBuffer, we are probably going to need to preflight.  This is clear when reading the CORS spec, but it isnít obviously clear from the beacon spec that there might be two http requests for a beacon ó one for the OPTIONS and one for the POST.  I am not sure if we can or should relax this or not.  Maybe we should be more explicit about which mime types in the beacon specification donít cause the OPTIONS request.

The Beacon spec doesn't set "author request headers" when issuing a 
cross-origin request, so I would expect there to be no CORS preflight.
