about that?
    

That would be part of the "Platform Core" spec (number 10 on my list).

The Web Workers part of HTML5 (currently already in a separate document 
but still part of HTML5) is another one that might be split out from 
HTML5 and moved to Web Apps, but I volunteered to edit that draft anyway 
so I didn't list it in the e-mail.

  
Does structured storage have to be in the HTML5 spec? It seems that the entire section 5.10 is pretty decoupled from the rest of the specification.
