--- Comment #1 from Harald Alvestrand <harald@alvestrand.no> ---
This ties in with the topic of direct assignment of a mediastream as a media
source. The reuse of the word "blob" can mislead people into thinking that the
minted URL can be used for anything except assigning to a mediaelement's src
attribute. It can't - in particular "the data exposed" doesn't make senses.

Calling it a "Stream URL" doesn't help as long as that isn't defined eitehr.

Suggest removing the word "blob" and just saying "an URL", and stating that its
only required valid use is for assigning to an HTMLMediaElement.src attribute,
removing the sentence about "data exposed on that stream".
