I think Jonas does have a point. There are side effects to setting the  
CORS headers. I am not sure whether these are bad or good, but if people  
approach this from the idea of getting cross-origin caching to work they  
might not consider them.

I.e. once CORS is used on those resources they can be read using  
XMLHttpRequest. And once we make further changes to the platform  
cross-origin images can be read via <canvas>, etc.
