    initial v1  
    1 Have to agree with @jitter and @anonymous: jQuery works around a wide variety of browser inconsistencies, that's probably about half its purpose (the other half being simplifying complex operations). This is a classic browser inconsistency: Chrome and Firefox support [http://www.w3.org/TR/access-control/ CORS] via `XMLHttpRequest`; IE instead uses `XDomainRequest`. It makes no more sense for this to be a plug-in than it would for (say) handling IE's broken `getAttribute` function being a plug-in. Recommend reopening and scheduling for 1.6.1 or 1.6.2 (especially as jQuery now has the `jqXHR` concept).
