To overcome changes in the Web Storage spec, I've changed the
definition of a storage area from:
    "A storage area is a data-store that is unique for the origin of a
widget, which a user agent can use to store string-based key-value
pairs."

To:
    "A storage area is a data-store that is unique for the origin of a
widget, which a user agent uses to persistently store data."

The new definition is data type agnostic, so hopefully robust enough
to handle future changes to Web Storage.

Kind regards,
Marcos
