This issue results from a joint meeting between the Open IPTV Forum, HbbTV and
the UK DTG. These organizations originally sent a liaison statement to the W3C
Web & TV IG:

We appreciate that appendStream is new however we're trying to understand how
it would work in some real-world use-cases and details seem to be lacking.
How would you expect the Stream objects to be obtained for use with
appendStream? For example, would you expect the extensions to XMLHttpRequest
defined in the Streams API specification to be used to create a Stream object
referencing an XMLHttpRequest? If not, how would you expect this be done
typically? If there is an assumed dependency on other new W3C specifications
then we suggest this be made more explicit. 

In this context, how should xmlHttpRequest.open(GET, ...) behave if
insufficient client resources exist to store the result?
