Just a few weeks ago (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2008JulSep/0186.html 
) I proposed a stripped down version of the File Upload spec (thinking  
it defunct) that matched Mozilla's implementation sans the data  
accessors.   One reason for not including the data accessors was that  
we don't think synchronous access to the disk is a good idea and  
browser.
