comment How secure is github's whitelisting CORS domains?
You are probably right about the ToS enforcing part, but you don't have to contact github to get into CORS whitelist. You just go to github.com/settings/applications and create an application. Which is why I think that the contact for whitelisting point is about rate limits, not cors whitelist. Also see the commit message at github.com/github/developer.github.com/commit/… makes it pretty clear.

comment How secure is github's whitelisting CORS domains?
Your first quote is from the Rate Limit section of the API. I think white-listing in that section stands for "over-rate-limit". And JSONP API access means that anyone could use the API w/o creating an account/application (they can't enforce ToS) Also, as my question points out[2] , you don't have to contact github, merely create an oath application for adding your domain to the whitelist.
