What exactly do you mean by "cross-origin media is not allowed at all"? I
hope you mean "CORS is not used at all", since obviously image and media
elements are allowed to load resources cross-origin today, and changing that
would break the Web.

"Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for
they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures
every day to see if what Paul said was true." [Acts 17:11]
