HTML5 does many things to provide hints to UAs that help the UA validate
form input (such as the
accept<http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/forms.html#attr-input-accept>attribute).
Have you already considered allowing
maxlength <http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/forms.html#attr-fe-maxlength> to give
a maximum file size hint for file inputs? (I can't imagine this is a new
suggestion, but I also can't immediately see what it would have been
considered and rejected as the attribute has no other meaning for a file
upload, but it's not mentioned in the spec...)
