XMLHttpRequest Anonymous Flag not working

On my website I am using XMLHttpRequest to open an XML file from another server:

var xml = new XMLHttpRequest();
xml.open("GET","http://www.otherserver.com/data.xml", false);
xml.send(null);
if(xml.status==200){
console.log(xml.responseXML);}

The above code works but I would love to be able to do the same thing but anonymously; without sending my website's url as the referer.

On [w3.org...] it states that I can use the anon:true flag which would make my request anonymous by sending "about:blank" as the referer, but I haven't had any luck. In both examples the referer data is sending just like it did above:

var xml = new XMLHttpRequest({anon:true});
...

var xml = new XMLHttpRequest({anonymous:true});
...

Am I using this flag incorrectly or is this flat ust poorly supported?

If I am using it correctly are there any any other ways to fetch data from another server anonymously?

There are several sites out there through which you can hide the referrer, simply by processing the request through an referrer anonymizer.
