As useful as this would be, I can't help thinking that:

1. It's a huge time sink that will delay the rest of the spec.
2. We simply don't know enough at this point in time to reliably 
standardize something like this.

Keep in mind that most of what this group is doing is based on 5-10 
years of practical, hard-earned experience. Offline web apps are based 
on what we'd like to do at some point in the future.

I would suggest this be a separate, experimental effort. When we know 
more about the problem, we can come back to it in a couple of years.
