I started this quick POC, which uses Rails as a web-content proxy to allow intercepting and modifying html pages.

[End User Request  > My Bad URL > Actual server > My Bad URL > Nokogiri (modify response) > End User Response]

It's pretty bare bones and allows you to browse any website at your own URL, modifying the response in the middle.

Seems like an interesting loophole.  Even with CORs set up properly, assets could be stored and re-served to the end user.
