By the way, this from the IESG:

The IESG has reviewed the Internet-Draft "Form-based File Upload in HTML"
  <draft-ietf-html-fileupload-03.txt> and recommends that it be published
  by the RFC Editor as an Experimental RFC. This document is the product of
  the HyperText Markup Language Working Group. The IESG contact persons are
  John Klensin and Harald Alvestrand.
