Ok. Then I propose that we leave it at WD for now, since I do not intend 
to write a definition of the SQL dialect unless someone intends to 
implement this without using Sqlite. If anyone ever does want to implement 
Web SQL Database without Sqlite, please let me know and I'll spec out the 
SQL dialect.

What's the deadline by which we have to have submitted a request? If 
there's time, I'd like to address Adrian's feedback on the Web Sockets API 
and then either publish it as LC (if Adrian agrees) or at least WD.
