I think we agree. I actually meant well-defined but opaque to JavaScript
consumers. In other words script in a web page can't deduce any meaningful
information from the string. If we're aiming for that property then it
makes sense that the entire scheme be defined (something like
filedata:00000000-0000-0000-0000-00000000000). We can bikeshed the scheme
name later but I'd prefer something more generic now url is off Blob.

I agree that there should be HTTP/1.1 response codes for GET.
