> Honestly, I don't know if CORS should have anything to do with @download. Clearly, there are security implications, but CORS is not an answer to every security problem on the Web. There are two new capabilities given by the proposed attribute - force downloading a resource, and rename it in the process. Neither is what a server operator would think about when opening a resource for cross origin use.

Indeed, the discussion around cross-origin URLs/CORS continues, and doesn't seem to have converged yet. This CL currently ignores 'download' for cross-origin URLs entirely. Perhaps it should remain like this until there is an agreement on how to deal with them?
