I recall you need to pass full url of your main resource in first
parameter, and destinationHost: is ignored for "file" protocol, so this
way you whitelist all "file://" urls at once (may be dangerous!).
Not sure how this will work for main resource loaded through HTML
string, though. You might need to consult the source code. It's
located here, if you brave: WebCore/page/SecurityOrigin.cpp
