Hi,

Glancing quickly at the editors draft of
http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/WebSimpleDB/ and with help from the WebIDL
checker, I've found the following problems:

* none of the interfaces/exceptions are marked with the extended
attribute [NoInterfaceObject] — I doubt they are all meant to be visible
in the global namespace

* The IDBDatabaseException Interface uses the "attribute" keyword for
"code" and "message" - exceptions don't have attributes, the keyword
should be removed

* IDBDatabaseSync.createObjectStore uses an extended attribute
"[Null=Null]" on its second parameter - I suspect it was meant to be
"[TreatUndefinedAs=Null]", and if so, the type of the parameter should
be "DOMString?" rather than DOMString

Based on the discussions on the list, and as the beginning of 3.3 seems
to allude to, synchronous operations are only going to be used in
Workers; I suggest to state that clearly, and also to start the first
example of the spec with the async example if that's the one that is
most likely to be used.
