While there may be ways to work around this issue on a case by case basis (add SPI to define schemes as being http like, to allow a foo:// navigation bar:// act as a cross origin), I think we really need to solve this problem. Using httpd (or maybe the web-platform-tests python one) could be one solution, though it would be nice if could do it in process.
