Yes. Where if the filename is excluded is left out it uses the of the Blob (if the Blob is also a File), or "blob" (if the
Blob is not a File).

That leaves the question what to do if the filename is specified but
is the empty string. I would argue that we should honor the call and
use the empty string as name when submitting.
