Based on the mailing list discussion, it was generally agreed that we could
rename the "remove" method on the object store API back to it's original name
of "delete". This was originally renamed due to EcmaScript reserved word
concern, but since all implementations are targeting EcmaScript 5, and "delete"
is contextually unreserved in ES5, the use of "delete" is perfectly fine, and
the most clear word for the action of the method.
