If we don't cache the response bodies in the server, then GC will remove the data URI strings, right? And the client can avoid storing the bodies if we want to trade snappiness for memory usage. That said, the spec for transmitting binary data through the protocol is here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Remote_Debugging_Protocol_Stream_Transport Bug 797639 should provide the means to accomplish what you want.
Depends on: 797639
The problem with relying on the cache is it has an eviction policy. You can pin things in the cache by holding on to the cache token, though... for things that are cached.

This problem still exists, but different parts now have newer bugs (bug 868382, bug 1297525) about them, so perhaps this one is fine to leave closed...
