--- Comment #1 from Tab Atkins Jr. <jackalmage@gmail.com> 2011-01-19 01:21:23 UTC ---
#1 and #2 are already handled via the @accept attribute on <input type=file>. 
You declare what type of file you'd like to accept, and the browser can then
ask the user if they wish to provide a file, or use their mic/camera to create
one on the fly.

#3 is already handled by XHR, and has been for a while.

For #4, <object> is already designed to accept arbitrary files, with more
specialized elements (<img>, <audio>, <video>) accepting particular types of
files for better handling.

Your assertion that <img src=foo.php> may not work in some browsers is false -
no browser rejects images based on file extension, nor do any of them try to
automatically save images referenced through <img>.  If they did, they'd have
massive compatibility problems, precisely because so many images are generated
by php scripts in that way.  The correct way to load an image, dynamically
generated or not, is to use <img>.
