To the risk of starting a bikeshedding discussion, is there a way to
find a different name for one or the other of the two interfaces, if
they can't be linked by an inheritance logic? It's very likely to cause
a lot of confusion if Stream and MediaStream aren't actually strongly

Would MediaSource work for instance? MediaConduit? MediaChannel?

Or maybe Stream should be StreamedBlob?
