The Web became successful before scripts and stylesheets even existed. So
are you arguing that cross-origin image loads made it successful? I think
not, most image references are same-origin. This isn't really the forum for
analyzing why Xanadu and others failed.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
