--- Comment #2 from Adrian Bateman [MSFT] <adrianba@microsoft.com> ---
The goal here is to avoid JavaScript from having to do work to load the data
with script (for example into an ArrayBuffer) before pushing back down to the
media engine. User agents use fewer resources by letting the media engine and
related components take care of buffer management.

I propose adding void appendStream(Stream stream) based on the Microsoft
proposal [1], which was discussed recently in Webapps [2]. We need to
understand if and how this feature will be added to the W3C XHR spec.
