I do not think this should be told up front. You already need to keep
the octet buffer in memory for overrideMimeType to work the way it
does. We designed responseBlob as an optimization so you would not
have to deal with the other types. I do not think you can optimize the
reverse with the design as it stands today.

In any event, any discussion on changes to the specification really
ought to happen on public-webapps at w3.org.
