I'm not sure it is a good idea to have an editor for offline cache and  
server-sent events who believes the features should not exist or  
should be completely redesigned. Both of these features have been  
implemented in multiple browsers and have taken into account many  
rounds of implementor feedback. So far as I can tell from feedback,  
implementors are more or less happy with the basic design. So what you  
propose sounds likely to be disruptive.
