RE: Streams and Blobs

Also, the Stream object lets you pipe the data from to/from Web Workers, which can be handy in certain scenarios.

From: [] On Behalf Of Darin Fisher

Another thing not to lose sight of is that a Stream abstraction could be useful as an optimization tool.  There are times when a developer just needs to connect a data stream from a provider to a consumer and doesn't necessarily care about seeing the raw bytes.  (The data may not even be available in the address space of the process running the developer's script.)  So, I can imagine some optimization opportunities when we work with a handle to a stream of data rather than the data itself.
