onbitmap is there to complement sendBitmap().

sendBitmap() is there because it is quite plausible that we'll need to send
HTMLImageElements a lot (maybe HTMLCanvasElements too, but they can be better
represented as HTMLImageElements on the receiving side), and it's a pain to
have to get a File out of them first.

sendDocument/ondocument might make sense; what's the use case?

sendPDF/onpdf and sendXLSX/onxslx doesn't make much sense since those types
aren't native types on the Web platform.
