Antonio Gomes noted to me that Ryosuke asked the same question around a month ago and got no objections (https://lists.webkit.org/pipermail/webkit-dev/2013-August/025351.html), so I am going to move forward and remove it.

DOMFileSystem is not supported by any major browser except Chrome, and I expect WebKit’s future support in this area will revolve around Mozilla’s proposal (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2013JulSep/0071.html).
