I'm not against the explicit model, but I think it would be very
desirable if there was a way to get the origin out of the blob URL with
some sort of API.
It's not unlikely that developers will implement their own (flawed) URL
parsing to determine the origin of a blob URL, if it's explicitly in the
blob URL.
