1) Given translation you're required to use CORS for cross-origin
fetching to protect intranets (unfortunate as that may be). So like
<script src> is out of the equation. This also means the header is
required for such cross-origin resources.

2) I suspect you want a way to opt into using credentials (similar to
<script crossorigin=use-credentials src>), but I agree that by default
you should not include them (similar to <script crossorigin src>).
