RequestBuilder and SOP

Greetings!

Gentlemen, please help me to understand one GWT feauture.

I have the following code:


I thought that this code should produce a simple ajax get request to the url specified, and if the domain of target url does not coincide with domain of my app - it should return error or nothing.

But in fact, it works in the following way:
- if target url contains json it returns that json:
url example: http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql?q=select%20*%20from%20csv%20where%20url%3D'http%3A%2F%2Fdownload.finance.yahoo.com%2Fd%2Fquotes.csv%3Fs%3DINFY.BO%2CRELIANCE.NS%2CTCS.BO%26f%3Dsl1d1t1c1ohgv%26e%3D.csv'%20and%20columns%3D'symbol%2Cprice%2Cdate%2Ctime%2Cchange%2Ccol1%2Chigh%2Clow%2Ccol2'&format=json
MessageBox with json response is shown.
The request is marked as OK in Chrome Developer Tools Network section.

- if target url is a simple site url (for example: http://edition.cnn.com/) - it returns nothing, no response at all, no error.
Empty Message box in OnSuccess handler is shown.
The request is marked as Canceled in Chrome.

So whats going on?
I thought I can reach other sites only if I use JsonRequestBuilder to create script elements on my web page.
Does simple RequestBuilder also create script elements all the time?
If no, then why first request is working?
If yes, then why the second request is cancelled?

GWT 2.4, Chrome 19.0
