Mozilla would probably object to implementing this on security grounds.  Since
pages can put the filepicker up from script, the proposal makes it trivial to
use a user holding enter for a bit too long to put up the filepicker, select a
file of the web page's choice, and send it to the server.

The use cases are good, but we need to solve the above problem before this can
end up in the spec.
