I don't have a strong preference as to the exact shape and colour of the way in which a download can be triggered for a Blob, but I do believe that it ought to happen in a way that is as consistent as possible with the existing triggering of downloads in present browsers. That means that user interaction should *not* be a prerequisite since that isn't required today, and is very commonly used as such.
