           Summary: Maybe there could be a function to specify a cache
                    manifest in the API so that instead of the application
                    asking for offline storage when the page loads, some
                    JavaScript can be used to request storage when the
                    user clicks on a "Use Offline Mode" link.

instead of the application asking for offline storage when the page loads,
some JavaScript can be used to request storage when the user clicks on a "Use
Offline Mode" link.

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: If it turns out that people do this (rather than browsers just
granting some space automatically without prompting the user) then we can add
such a feature, sure. But we should wait to find out how people use it first.
