The Mozilla Foundation reports:

Redirection from an HTTP connection to a data: URL assigns the referring site's origin to the data: URL in some circumstances. This can result in same-origin violations against a domain if it loads resources from malicious sites. Cross-origin setting of cookies has been demonstrated without the ability to read them.
