Hi there,

this is about 

1) I believe it would be good if the example actually showed the full 
POST request so that it contains the media type.

2) Speaking of which: I assume the media type is supposed to be 

Also, this essentially introduces a mechanism by which the UA will 
automatically send an unsafe HTTP request (POST) to a server which might 
have a different origin than the server triggering this. Are we sure 
that this doesn't introduce a new exploit? Maybe it would be better to 
at least use a non-generic media type instead?

Best regards, Julian
