No, the algorithms defined in
http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/FileAPI/#creating-revoking would have to
be parameterized somehow. So they make sense for Blob, but also for
other objects that are Blob-like. And then I guess in your
specification you would end up with the createObjectURL() overload and
a sentence that says "MediaStream is a Blob-like" and then everything
else would follow from that.
