The Blob.url will return a URL that can be used to refer to the blob object in a resource request, like blobdata:f81d4fae-7dec-11d0-a765-00a0c91e6bf6. The blob object can represent a whole file, a partial file (created by Blob.slice), or a byte array (created by BlobBuilder defined in the FileWriter spec). What is the right place I can hook up with in order to interpret and process the blobdata request? Should it be in the WebKit library layer that will be implemented by individual platform or in the higher layer like what application cache does the work?

Definitely a higher level. We don’t want to have to reimplement a feature like this for each platform.
