Assuming I'm understanding the background reading correctly,

    myFileInput.files = new FileList([aFile]);
    myFileInput.files = new FileList([bFile, cFile]);

seems like the way to go. As long as, generally,

    var x = someThingOfTheCorrectType;
    y.z = x;
    assert(y.z === x);

passes, then we're in good shape.
