There's some discussion about this API here:


The summary would be that the new event is dropped. HTMLInputElement would  
get a new member called fileList which either returns null or FileList  
depending on whether files have been selected or not. Changes to  
HTMLInputElement would be signaled through the 'change' event and possibly  
the 'input' event. (Which already dispatch on it.)
