I see. My original question doesn't even make sense given that
displayName and estimatedSize are not optional.

I guess I had gotten used to not thinking about those two parameters
because Gears is not planning on using them. Our applications
sometimes use multiple databases (because they are stretched across
origins) and it does not make sense to put up a dialog for each one.

But I don't have a proposal right now, so just ignore this thread. Sorry!
