Anne, please read the bug. I suggested a second version, which does not 
have the "use once" language.

I prefer copy-by-pointer to copy-by-cut/paste; describing the behaviour 
of CreateObjectURL(MediaStream) in terms of CreateObjectURL(Blob) seems 
like a Good Thing to me.

We don't want these behaviours to evolve independently.
