Hmm.  You're right, there's a lot of overlap there.  sessionStorage
might be sufficient for caching, for most applications.  If not,
localStorage could be used and managed manually.  I retract my opinion
on the usefulness of two different types of localStorage; I'll defer
to the developers of actual web apps here.
