I understand the problem that JSONP is trying to solve, I just
completely disagree with that solution. Executing JSON directly,
without passing through the sanity checks of a parser, just sounds like
a recipe for disaster. Surely there is a better solution available.
Wikipedia mentions that HTML5 has a 'postMessage' mechanism that gets
rid of the problem entirely.
Alternatively, chances are very good your backend and webserver are at
least on the same network, if not the same host. Why not have whatever
web application you are writing, that needs to provide its own data
independent of the Services API, just proxy those requests to the
backend? That way, everything appears to be coming from the one host?
