--- Comment #19 from Robert O'Callahan (Mozilla) <roc@ocallahan.org> ---
The fundamental problem with createObjectURL is that there is no way for the
browser to automatically know when the Web application is no longer using the
string. That's why manual (or auto) revocation is needed. This problem is
common to Blobs, MediaStreams and every other user of createObjectURL.

Anyway we're only quibbling about wording here. It's already pretty clear what
Harald meant, and I just would like to see it stated a little more precisely.
