That's great news! Having multiple independent implementations will, I  
hope, provide more reason to advance the spec.

However, I still think SQL storage should be split from LocalStorage/ 
SessionStorage, since there is no technical reason for them to be tied  
together, and they enjoy different levels of consensus and implementor  
support.
