One more thought. I think option 5 is essentially option 2 plus also add support for <input type=directory>. I.e. if we do option 5 I'd prefer to do it by having <input type=file directories> work as described in option 2, but then also have <input type=directory>. One important question though is what would <input type=file directories> do on platforms that don't have a directory UI concept? Like most mobile platforms? / Jonas
