How is the review coming along? It would be useful to get incremental  
feedback and comments rather than a large set all at once. Does Apple  
have an ETA for completing the review?

It would really help if we can all check whether IndexedDB satisfies  
relevant technical requirements. Besides inverted indexes, I have  
ruled out any other feature requests that seem to expand the scope of  
this spec without commensurate benefits.
