Re: [whatwg] Accessing local files with JavaScript portably and securely

The main thing that seems to be missing from this thread is any commitment
from any browser vendors to actually support any changes in this space. I
would recommend the following steps for anyone hoping to push changes to
Web specifications on this topic:

- Approach Web browser vendors privately, to see if they are interested in
changing their behaviour in this space.

- If you find interest, collect up the use cases that you want to address,
and post them to this list for discussion.

- Collect the input on use cases and try to design a solution that fits all
the important use cases, then send an an e-mail to this list proposing a
basic design.
