"enter" seems consistent with the Geolocation API, with methods like
"getCurrentPosition" and "watchPosition", not "requestCurrentPosition" and
"requestToWatchPosition".  In other words, the fact that permission might be
required to complete the task isn't baked into the method name.

IDBDatabase.createObjectStore is similar; the implementation may ask the
user permission, but it's not named "requestCreateObjectStore".
