Hi, I have a concern about the web storage event spec (
http://dev.w3.org/html5/webstorage/).

The spec states:
"When the setItem(), removeItem(), and clear()  methods are called on a
Storage object x that is associated with a local storage area, if the
methods did something, then in every HTMLDocument object whose Window
object's localStorage attribute's Storage object is associated with the same
storage area, other than x, a storage event must be fired..."

My concern lies with the "other than x" part.  Unless I'm missing something,
these events would be even more useful if they also fired in the
HTMLDocument that initially made the storage call.

Thanks for your time.
