Yes, that is why we have this thread, I was talking about Blob URL...
I'm trying to find solution that would solve both (sure, I do not mind 
explicit release).
I do not want solution where working with set of images would require to 
traverse through all images and somehow trying to determine whether 
images is regular URL or blob and go through 2 different branches.
Suggestions like "We could define that it returns an empty src 
attribute" prohibits any additional working with such image... accessing 
such image tells me nothing... is such image Blob image? Is it new empty 
image?
