It would be great if it were possible to store JavaScript objects (DOM
and/or NON-DOM elements) within the browser's database as is with no
string-i-fication of the objects. The problem, the string conversion
process can be rather slow on large JavaScript objects and it will
also involve converting back the string into JavaScript objects when
retrieving from the database, which again can be slow. It will really
empower graphic intensive applications to store images as is within
the browser instead of having to retrieve them and store them as data
and then use them using the  data:URI scheme.
