Happy New Year to everyone on this WG.

I have revised the DataCache [1] draft based on feedback received so  
far. I have a couple of emails to respond to, which I will do shortly.  
At this time, this draft is ready for a new WD publication.

The following are the major changes in this draft:

1. The spec extends the HTML5 ApplicationCache interface and add some  
behaviors to it related to programmability of caching.
2. There is no more a secure data cache concept that would be guarded  
by cookies.
3. This spec is heavily tied to the HTML5 Application Cache and refers  
to a lot of terms, algorithms, interfaces, and events defined there.  
It also modifies the networking model defined there.
5. The asynchronous interfaces are styled similar to Indexed Database.
6. I have removed the synchronous interface until we agree on the rest  
of the spec.
7. Security considerations are modified.
8. Mechanisms to inspect the metadata of application caches is provided.
9. A new mechanism to annotate an application cache with outbox type  
of metadata is provided so that user agents can provide a control  
panel to users for acting on outbox when network connectivity is  
reestablished.
10. New events on the cache are removed or moved to events on cache  
transactions.
11. The File API Blob interface is now used in the spec.
