No. Can you give an example of a feature that is used as wildly as
cross-site POSTs are today which websites have largely stopped using?

The whole scenario of cross site POSTs going away is extremely
hypothetical. My point was that you selected a very specific
hypothetical world where sites had somehow stopped using cross site
<form> POSTing, but still were using cross site CORS POSTing (which it
the exact opposite of todays world).
