Sounds great.  Although wouldn't now be the best time to introduce  
something new?  Its not a breaking change (theoretically), its an  
additional feature.  Its my understanding that most of Web Storage is  
undergoing changes (B-trees and SQL orthogonally), but the Storage  
interface is not going to change much?  Is that because of current  
browser support?

Fair enough. =)
