Allows authenticated cross-origin requests to the REST API with session cookies.
With this option enabled, any origin specified in $wgCrossSiteAJAXdomains may send session cookies for authorization in the REST API.
There is a performance impact by enabling this option. Therefore, it should be left disabled for most wikis and clients should instead use OAuth to make cross-origin authenticated requests.
