I'm working on multipart/form-data  and automated testing for it, 
and I'm a little stuck getting form submission to work reliably.

https://github.com/masinter/multipart-form-data

The set up is the form test creates iframes for each test,
creates a form for the test, sets it as the iframe's srcdoc,
which automatically submits it to a local "post echo" server
(python and node.js included).

Anyway, the form submission seems to work now in Chrome
and Firefox, but lately IE has stopped sending the event message.

I'm wondering if there's some security IE setting which
isn't allowing the iframe.srcdoc to trigger the message
event.

Of course, if someone has a better form-submission
testing framework, that would be great.
