KeyPaths and their underspecification has come up in several threads, but
especially "[IndexedDB] KeyPaths and missing properties" [1].  We need to have
normative text describing how to parse keyPath and how a keyPath maps to
properties of a value.  We need to decide whether we want to allow explicit
index management and whether we want this to be done via ObjectStore's
add/modify/addOrModify or whether we want to have methods hanging off of each
index to do this.  We need to decide what to do if the key corresponding to a
keyPath doesn't exist (insert null, insert nothing, or raise error).  This list
may be incomplete.
