In case of a file upload dialog the user can select a file which is not readable (ownership/mode) for him. Progressing the upload page silently fails and does nothing at all.
This is almost certainly a duplicate of bug 702949.
It's pretty similar but not the same. Submitting an empty file as proposed there is no option if permission is denied. Something need to recognize it's not readable and report that to the user. Silently failing or transmitting "wrong" data is no solution here.
