Would be nice if there is any way to set an event handler for receiving Dropped files inside the Window/Document. This feature can be used to extends "usability" on uploading files.

For INPUT FILES the drop of a file inside its text box only has to put its full path (today its block the drop).

But any DOM object can manipulate a file drop event, like this:

<div id='drag-your-file-here-to-upload' onDragFile='dragEventHandler()'>Drag Here!</div>

or inside javascript code:

function somefunc()
{
  //...
  element.ondragfile = dragEventHandler;
  //...
}

function dragEventHandler(event)
{
   // ...
}

See also bug 50660, which asks for file upload controls to accept dragged files, and has roughly the same security implications.
