Creating a test suite for Web Storage now is a good idea. If Opera can  
contribute resources to help with that, it would definitely help  
advance the spec. It would help us identify problems sooner, and it  
would likely allow for a shorter CR period if we had a test suite  
ready to go.

I think as far as editing goes, it's more solving the mutex design  
problem that is a blocker, as opposed to literal textual editing of  
the spec. I think anyone can contribute to that effort. So far,  
though, none of the ideas has gotten buy-in from all of the affected  
implementors. It would help a lot if someone could organize all the  
ideas, note pros and cons, and try to find other solutions.

Maciej
