OK, here's the deal. The way clients implement the upload is rather up to the clients. From my personal experience dealing with much this same request I can tell you that you aren't going to have any fun trying to get this to work.
Any way you look at it, ugly ugly ugly and browser dependent to boot. Worse, you take the chance of making it completely unusable to people without JS or with JS turned off.
Covering your six points quickly:
As to the post about TCL on the mailing list, that wasn't what you were looking for. That was a browser plug-in that gets the browser to do the work while the upload happens. It is effectively a browser upgrade so you would have to encourage your users to get and install a plug-in that changes how their client displays uploads. That is fixing the client, not a CGI fix.
