I think before extending this further we should first have solid
implementations of accept="" as it stands today. The use case for "image/*" for
instance is really big but there is not many user agents that do something

something clever with them. You can just filter. If you have the media type you
could offer a shortcut to Word for instance. If you just have the file
extension that becomes a bit more dodgy.)
