[Bug 11951] One part of this section says "Binary data with a file name" and another part says "optionally with a file name". So is it optional or not?

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Neither part is normative (they're just descriptions of what the
items in question are about), but actually it's not contradictory: "Binary data
with a file name" is what it is if it's File, and there's no file name if it's
just a "Plain Unicode string". So, the file name is optional.

I've changed "optionally" to "in some cases", hopefully that'll clarify this
sufficiently.
