Description Ms2ger 2014-02-02 12:59:42 UTC states:

I have no idea what that means. The one thing I could imagine—that the methods should not work for Blobs created in another global scope—is not implemented by either Gecko or Chrome, and I don't see why it would.

Also note that neither method takes a nullable blob, so "non-null" is pointless at best.

Fixed; this concept doesn't exist anymore, but closed blobs have been defined more clearly.
