This is the right working group, and the right group of people.  But the 
spec. you are commenting on is only for communication with the local 
file store, for use in conjunction with other parts of the web platform 
(e.g. XHR2).

I think network downloads and other things are legitimate work items for 
the future in this WG, perhaps as further refinements to XHR2.  Will 
Google propose them?
