[Bug 23946] New: Lift the ban on query parts in “blob:” URIs


            Bug ID: 23946
           Summary: Lift the ban on query parts in “blob:” URIs
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: File API

The blob:-URI scheme explicitly forbids query parts. RFC 3986 on the other hand
explicitly allows query parts,
<http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-3.4>. (The “(if any)” refers to the
existance of a naming authority in my reading.)

So the forbidding of query parts makes blob: a non-URI in the sense of that
RFC. Are there any hard reasons to forbid query parts? Just from reading the
spec, that move seems arbitrary. There might be useful applications, though,
e.g., parametrising dynamically generated JS in a blob.
