Many of the browser vendors would like to lock down file URL access more. 
Mozilla is experimenting with a tighter security policy.  My understanding is
that their experiment is fairly successful.  It might be getting to be time to
revisit this issue more broadly.  For this patch, though, we should stick with
WebKit's current security policy.  We can always change it later if and when we
revise the access policy for file URLs in general.

(As for what the specs say, they are silent on this point.  More precisely,
they say the behavior is implementation-defined.)
