I know this is from a separate conversation, but I ask because it is  
relevant to me in the context of Web Storage. Would it be possible to  
edit the Web Storage API draft to include the proposed [1]  
programmable HTTP cache [2] in it?

I suppose the precedent is commit-then-review. Is that practice  
relevant in this case? What software and configuration do I need to  
commit?
