[whatwg] SQL API error handling

It is normal that the disk gets full; the probability of this event is 1 for
a consumer disk.  (Admittedly, the operating system can cry aloud and refuse
to do anything when the startup volume is about to overflow but the database
could be stored on another volume that is not protected that way).  OTOH, it
is an exceptional situation that data become corrupt.  Therefore these two
situations are not equivalent.
Best regards

Corruption in the database isn't the fault of the user agent.  I  
consider it at the same level as corruption on disk - or even a full  
As I consider these to be similar, I assert that database corruption  
is an external force the user agent - and potentially the application  
it hosts - needs to be ready to handle.
