I do not buy that "creating an asynchronous access method and exposing this
in the page" ... "defeats the main purpose of LocalStorage (which is to be a
simple, light weight way to store data)"
Having one async callback doesn't make the API hard to use. Callbacks are
easy to work with in JS. Adding one is not the end of the world by a long
That said, I suppose it is probably wise to chase down option 3), if people
are motivated, so that we don't end up with *three* name/value storage APIs.
