The one potentially problematic thing is exposing Blob passed to
FormData as File since they always have a filename. This might give
you distinct references to the underlying system file object. I'm not
sure if that is problematic. If it is problematic, I am not sure how
to keep the FormData API simple. I guess we should then introduce
FormEntry objects and change the API proposal to work with those.
