During WebApps's November 1 gathering, participants discussed the Web 
SQL Database spec:

   http://www.w3.org/2010/11/01-webapps-minutes.html#item09

As we know, this spec is at an "impasse" as noted in the Status section:

[[
http://dev.w3.org/html5/webdatabase/#status-of-this-document

This specification has reached an impasse: all interested implementors 
have used the same SQL backend (Sqlite), but we need multiple 
independent implementations to proceed along a standardisation path. 
Until another implementor is interested in implementing this spec, the 
description of the SQL dialect has been left as simply a reference to 
Sqlite, which isn't acceptable for a standard. Should you be an 
implementor interested in implementing an independent SQL backend, 
please contact the editor so that he can write a specification for the 
dialect, thus allowing this specification to move forward.
]]

As such, participants in the discussions suggested the spec be published 
as a "Working Group Note" and this is Call for Consensus to do.

*Note Well: by publishing a Working Group Note, the group sends a signal 
to the community that work on this spec has ended* as described in the 
Process Document:

   http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr.html#q75

As with all of our CfCs, positive response is preferred and encouraged 
and silence will be assumed to be assent.

The deadline for comments is November 13.
