Oh, I see.  You've added this "taint" thing, which you're using for the 
CSS bit.

I don't believe Gecko has any such concept.  We simply fail the load if 
the CORS check fails.  Furthermore, Gecko's behavior is what the CORS 
spec requires: failure to respond properly to a cross-origin CORS 
request must be treated like a network error per CORS.
