This is correct, but I'm not seeing an issue here.  Yes, one origin can produce an assertion that is validated by a different origin.  Yes, the browser that is used to produce an assertion doesn't validate that assertion (it's not the relying party).

This might sound like a problem, but it isn't.  You can read about why if you dig into SIGMA, and draft-ietf-mmusic-sdp-uks contains a more direct description of the problems that arise from this (and defenses you need).
