Hi,

here are a few comments after a superficial read of 
<http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/FileUpload/publish/FileAPI.html>:

- wouldn't FileStatus be a better name than FileError, given that it can 
also contain a success code?

- why would a Euro sign be represented as code 128 in a binary string? 
(don't tell me because of Windows character encodings :-)

- mediaType: can this contain parameters? An RFC link that provides an 
ABNF would be useful here (for instance, 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc2616.html#rfc.section.3.7>)

- don't say URL when you mean "URI"

- RFC 2234 (ABNF) has been updated multiple times, it's now RFC 5234

- why is a new URI scheme needed? Can't you just use urn:uuid?

- the definition of URLs and URIs is in RFC 3986, not RFC 1630.

BR, Julian
