Same here. I continue to think that the "web database" isn't a good
approach, but I don't think that should prevent publishing an updated
draft. We have done a lot of discussion at mozilla on the subject of
what we want a database interface to look like, including with other
interested parties as well as web authors. We should have something
more concrete shortly.

I also continue to miss actual developer demand for server sent
events. Seems like it doesn't add a lot of sugar over simply using
XMLHttpRequest and progress events. But again, I'm fine with
publishing a new WD.
