Sounds good.

Besides this I also changed the way the various flags work in the  
specification (turned them into actual flags rather than having boolean  
values) so maybe people could have a look at that too. It should all be  
slightly more clear now. The CORS manual redirect flag is not in use by  
the way, but might be used by XMLHttpRequest at some point.

I also fixed an issue with the force preflight flag that was raised on the  
public-webapps list in December:  

If people find new issues please file bug reports.
