Perhaps. Fundamentally, I don't think you've made a compelling enough case for folks to become interested and wanting to work in this space and help you solve your problem. You've also have been fairly dismissive of the alternative points of view, such as the web being fundamentally linked to HTTP and that distributing (offline) applications over HTTP is the goal. That might make folks less compelled to engage with you. I suspect no browser, and I'm pretty certain about Mozilla since I work there, is interested in furthering file URLs. Most new operating systems abstract away the file system and the web as browsers see it has always done that. There's ways to pull files in, but there's not much use for letting applications write them out again (other than downloads, which are quite a bit different). -- https://annevankesteren.nl/
