Many of us have, at one point or another, suggested renaming the two  
database API specs. I think these requests have merit and I would be  
favorably disposed to changing names now rather than waiting till  
later when more confusion will arise.

Here's my suggestion:

1. WebDatabase be renamed to WebSQLDatabase
2. WebSimpleDB be renamed to ISAM Database Level 1

I would like to solicit your nod on this and for Ian to acknowledge  
that he is fine with this name change too so we can all go and attend  
to more useful stuff.

This is becoming more and more relevant since plenty of people are  
referencing these names without everyone always being clear about  
which one is which.
