Maybe I should explain "weird".

If the CORS mode is inherited from the importing sheet, then I think the 
"origin" for the fetch should be the page, not the importing sheet, 
since the page is what would get access to the stylesheet data.

Maybe this is OK, but it's non-obvious; usually for security purposes 
the importing sheet is what affects things like can-load checks, Referer 
headers, etc.
