Is there a long term plan for transferring access to Files from the FileSystem?

Currently, we can using FileEntry.file semantics then post the resulting Blob to another frame. From that point, the receiver can create a Blob URL. I'm concerned about all the extra work with Blobs which may get stuck in RAM.

Sure would be nice to pass strings instead.
