Google's Picasa, and various other web apis accept multipart/related input.
Given that we don't want a method for each output type supported, I think a
generic method would better serve authors.

[Supplemental] FormData
   void toBlob(in FileCallback, in optional DOMString type, in any... args);

The default type for FormData would be multipart/form-data.
Vendors would be encouraged to support these, in addition:

toBlob is defined in the html Canvas element.
