If those platforms don't support exposing, then it's easy for them, they
just don't respond to the use of the property "directory".

I think that the use of this property is to allow a user to upload a
directory (or more) in just one time (dragging for example). If the
platform does not expose directories then it does not make sense to even
care about the use of this proposed property.
