What about using a filename that is unique with repect to files sent in that
FormData (but it is up to the UA)? For example, a UA may choose to do Blob1,
Blob2, etc. For the content-type, application/octet-string seems most

Here's the result applied to your example:
   Content-Disposition: form-data; name="file"; filename="Blob1"
   Content-Type: application/octet-string
