Sorry to jump in the middle of your discussion but after reading Eric's
I haven't fully absorbed the MediaStream API, but perhaps it
would be more natural to make a connector in that API rather
than modifying Blob?
I think this use case also applies for other stream/file/blob analysis
and processing e.g. Augmented Reality, Object Recognition, DSP, etc.
I've raised this recently across the related groups  with a simple
use case and a number of supporting requirements.
