--- Comment #3 from Robert O'Callahan (Mozilla) <roc@ocallahan.org> ---
createObjectURL(MediaStream) does not return a URL representing a blob. The URL
it returns can only be used as a media element source and does not correspond
to a fixed array of bytes as blobs do. Thus the URL should use a different
scheme.

In Firefox we return a URL of the form "mediastream:<uuid>".

Likewise, our WIP MediaSource implementation has createObjectURL(MediaSource)
returning a URL of the form "mediasource:<uuid>".
