Greetings Adrian,

Sorry for the delay in responding to this email.  

Strictly speaking, we could remove the Blob Protocol Version (BLV) [1].  It isn't returned in getAllResponseHeaders.  BLV 's purpose was in case the protocol changes, and to differentiate between versions.  But the protocol is internally consumed within the UA.  I can remove it.

--Original Message--

The current spec defines the Blob Protocol Version [1]. Our current implementation
doesn't require a protocol version and the way protocol handlers are defined in
Internet Explorer does require this. I don't know if this is ever exposed in
the web platform. The spec says that this should be returned from XHR in
getAllResponseHeaders [2] but I don't think XHR actually returns this string there.

Please can someone help point me to where this is required? If it isn't
exposed anywhere I think we can remove this section.

Thanks,

Adrian
