My intent with the Web SQL Database spec (or whatever I end up calling
it) is to continue to drive it to REC, but without defining the SQL 
dialect in any more detail than the draft does now (as edited after the 
F2F). I would not consider multiple implementations all using the same SQL 
backend to be fully independent for the purposes of getting two 
interoperable implementations for the purpose of exiting CR, and thus I do 
not expect this spec to ever get past that stage.

For the other specs, I have received new feedback and intend to address it 
before advancing the specs (including Adrian's comments cited above).

Once I have returned to having no outstanding known issues on any of these 
five documents (storage, sql database, workers, eventsource, and sockets), 
I think they will be ready for transition to Last Call. I hope to be ready 
for this by the first week of next month.

(Apologies for the week's delay; I took an impromptu vacation last week.)
