@anssiko comment on this:

>That is a good question. Whatever we decide, we should specify the 
expected behaviour in order to allow the implementations to 
interoperate after we've figured out whether the API should work with 
data URIs.

> I think there may be a disagreement among implementers whether data 
URIs are same-origin depending on where they're used (Worker, iframe, 
img, open()...). I think the closest existing API to startSession() 
where data URIs can be used is open().

> I think the primary motivation for using data URIs has been 
performance. HTTP/1.x has known limitations in loading multiple 
resources concurrently, so inlining all the resources has improved the
 performance. Another use case I can think of is to be able to provide
 a single file that contains all the resources without the need to 
package multiple files together.

> Louay, All - I think you should investigate this further and come up
 with a recommendation on how to proceed i.e. whether data URIs should
 be allowed or not, and how to spec that
