I had a discussion with Anne on IRC about using the Storage interface 
and XHR [1]. He recommended that we recommend support for Storage only 
on user agents that support HTML5. With regards to XHR, the same 
applies: it would be a property of the underlying document technology.

So, proposal are: drop "Asynchronous HTTP Requests" requirement [2] and 
remove its support from Widgets 1.0: A&E. For Storage, specify that only 
HTML-aware UAs support Storage interface.

Kind regards,
Marcos
