Great! But, I think an editorial mistake in the updated spec page -
"The openDatabase() method returns a Database object. The method takes
four arguments: a database name, a database version, a display name,
and an estimated size, in bytes, of the data that will be stored in
Second "database name" should be "database description", or even "user
friendly database description"
