Hi all,

Awhile ago, it appears, the "files" object was removed from <input 
type="url">

Is there currently a method for allowing cross-domain access to
an image based on user input? At present, it seems a user must first 
download an
image to their desktop, then drag the image into an HTML 5 host.

Is this something that's intended to be handled in the future via 
event.dataTransfer?
