I've rationalized these down to 2 bugs.  

1. Bug 17125[1] is a feature that we should mark v.next; it calls for the ability to retroactively "unselect" an erroneous selection that is present in FileList.  I don't think this is a pressing feature.

2. Bug 19554[2] is a spec. request feature in WHATWG/HTML5, especially useful for autoRevoke semantics for Blob URLs.  I'm not sure whether autoRevoke is at risk because of this bug, since implementations have shown that stable state (what the spec. uses now) is problematic for autoRevoke.  But I'll let this be discussed in LC commentary or in upcoming TPAC discussions.

>P.S. Dom's WebIDL checker reports a bug in the Blob constructor 

Thanks for catching that :)  I think that particular bug is fixed.

And I'm sorry this is a day late (e.g. not ready by Oct. 15).  I've gotten it PubReady, using a "push out" date of Oct. 18.  Hope that works:
