Oracle does not support the substance of the current Web Storage draft  
[1][2][3]. This is a path-breaking change to the Web applications  
platform and rushing such a major change without substantive  
consideration of alternatives is not in its own best interest. Oracle  
does not see it fit to advance the current draft along the  
recommendation track

Still, we believe that the working group will benefit greatly from the  
wide review of this draft. Has the chair exhausted all such  
alternatives such as Working Group Note? At the very least the status  
needs to be clear about the purpose of publishing the document. A  
boilerplate status is not appropriate since there are important  
concerns about the technique used for structured storage in the draft.
