Can this URL be dynamically created at runtime using more JavaScript?

I'm not quite sure if it's possible, but I'm really tempted to write a 
proof of concept exploit that base64 encodes XML, stuffs it in JSON, 
downloads it with JSON, and then deencodes it and passes it to an XML 
parser for parsing.

Is there anyway to simply load arbitrary binary or text content from an 
arbitrary network connection in JavaScript? For instance, by setting an 
iframe URL to point to it and then grabbing it? If so, I could avoid the 
need to preencode the XML in JSON completely. :-)
