I know we had this conversation before, and I'm not even sure which
side of the issue I was on at the time, but given the amount of
confusion at the TPAC meeting yesterday, I think we should consider
renaming the "Web Database" spec.

It seems clear at this point that the API will in all likelyhood
forever be SQL based, so I propose that we include SQL somewhere in
the name, for example "Web SQL Database" or some such.
