(Speaking as contributor) This has been discussed quite a bit in the 
WebApps WG (as createObjectURL is used to reference blobs). The solution 
adopted as I understand it includes well defined life time handling and 
that the URI can be used only once in the default case.

Would the same solutions not work when createObjectURL is used to 
reference MediaStreams?
