Competition might be a great thing. But it doesn't address the issue
in the least. It would still be the case that some developers would
choose to use WebSQL, and browser makers would still have to support
it, including support the SQL dialect it uses.

Hence it would still be the case that we would be relying on the
SQLite developers to maintain a stable SQL interpretation to keep a
healthy and functional web.
