           Summary: Blob without arguments underdefined
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: File API
        AssignedTo: arun@mozilla.com
        ReportedBy: simonp@opera.com

The spec should say what to set the data to (when invoked with no arguments),
what to set the type to (if not specified), what 'endings' should be (if the
second argument is omitted altogether), etc.

Ideally I'd like the spec to have a single algorithm for when the constructor
is invoked, where all values are initialized to the appropriate things, then
the arguments are examined and change the values as appropriate, then a new
Blob object is created with those values set and that is returned. (See
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/network.html#dom-websocket
for an example of this style to spec constructors that doesn't leave things
undefined.)
