           Summary: [Streams API] Consider adding best-effort
                    scatter/gather mode

Best-effort scatter/gather mode, maybe as readType of e.g. "arraybuffer/sg" for
"arraybuffer", relaxes the requirement that "readPromise is fulfilled with one
object of the specified type" and allows fulfilling with fragments. This would
be useful for performance sensitive apps since Stream implementation can choose
to keep the original until right before fulfilling readPromise, and if it's set
to "*/sg" type, just return an Array of the fragments without doing
concat/split as possible.

Best-effort means that it's not guaranteed that everything is kept as-is.
Concat/split may happen.
