Do you plan to implement the File API attribute as .URL also?

I really think we should make sure we end up with a consistent naming 
scheme here. If Gecko is the only engine that's going to do .url instead 
of .URL, then I'm happy to change it back (on the assumption that Gecko 
will eventually be forced to change to match). However, it would be a 
pretty mess if we ended up developing APIs in the same year that had 
different cases for the same attributes.


Does anyone implement EventStorage.url, by the way? I noticed that one was 
lowercase in the spec while I was doing the earlier change.
