Web apps says

> globalStorage['www.example.com'] is accessible to
> www.example.com and example.com, but not www2.example.com.

I think it shouldn't be available to example.com . That use case is
already covered, and it is not clear how to tell that www.example.com
and example.com are related.

globalStorage['example.co.uk'] should not be available to 'co.uk' as a
whole. There is no clear distinction between chopping one part off and
going from 'www.example.org' to 'example.org' and going from
'example.co.uk' to 'co.uk'.
