Well, the spec shouldn't coerce implementations to do things they are reluctant
to do :(  One of the reasons we put in autoRevoke=true by default was to
minimize leaked strings (Blob URLs that persisted past their use), and to
minimize forcing developers to couple a create* call with a revoke* call.  Do
you think that's needlessly cautious?
