Well, CORS issues are related.  If we do follow through with this 
proposal, and the Horizon server was working as the proxy for all of the 
endpoints, we'd have to make sure we were comfortable with the security 
implications of all traffic (tokens) going through one server, as well 
as come up with a means to allow for multiple endpoints on one proxy server.
