[webkit-dev] Plan to move TypedArray out of WebGL feature guard

You need to have Blobs for ArrayBuffer to be of much use for XHR,
because you need to be able to set the Content-Type, and browsers may/will
fiddle with the content-type header you set, if you have not passed a Blob.

Blobs are defined under the File API (I believe).

Blob is already under the XHR spec, though I haven't seen it used in 
Webkit distros (responseBlob).

FileSystem is a wholly different matter.
