The question that we need to ask is whether we want to add support for this feature for other browsers by way of Flash or some other method or just allow those other browsers to fall back to the old upload method.
I guess this ultimately depends on which browsers support the HTML5 engine.
My general feeling is that we should not support Flash and Silverlight because they are propritary. As far as I know Gears and BrowserPlus are open source software and could be supported if it makes sense.
