Sorry, I was referring to just the HTML form input type "file".
It seems that it's a restriction across all modern browsers (with the exception of old IE versions).
I came across the same issues myself when trying handle a file picked from a form. In the end, an extension was the solution.

I discussed with Nukul and Ken in the github repo about it and we may have an api for file picker in the "(near) future" of BB10. Fingers crossing!!!
