Added test:

# clear-fires-event
Test that, upon invocation of the clear() method, a user agent queues a 
task to fire a StorageEvent event at the window object of an iframe 
contained by the start file. To pass, a storage event must be fired when 
a key is removed via the clear() method and the associated test values 
need to be correct.
