Hi all :)

I was hoping some of you might be able to give me some feedback on an
informal RFC i put together on my blog:


I'm basically looking to enable some sort of cross-host *and*
cross-domain interoperability between documents via a modified clone
of the XmlHttpRequest object, while attempting to tread very carefully
on various security issues, such as Cookies and Basic-Auth
credentials. A "ContextAgnosticXmlHttpRequest" would be a new object
developers could use, beyond the traditional XmlHttpRequest.

i'm not crazy about the ContextAgnostic* prefix ... but that's all i
could come-up with so-far.
It would obviously have a very very limited use and would absolutely
not negate the usefulness of an XmlHttpRequest.

I would look to use such object with non-transactional RESTful services/APIs

thank you for your time :)
