Given the lack of support for stopping work on Web Storage [1], I'd let 
to get consensus on the plan to move it to Last Call Working Draft.

Currently there are two open bugs:

1. Bug 12111: "spec for Storage object getItem(key) method does not 
match implementation behavior". PLH created a version of the spec that 
addresses this bug [12111-fix].

2. Bug 13020: "No user agent will implement the storage mutex so this 
passage does not reflect reality".

There are different opinions on the priority of Web Storage ...

* Web Storage is a low priority and the Editor will get to it when he 
gets to it

* Web Storage is a high priority because the lack of a LCWD will block 
at least the Widget Interface spec from progressing on the Rec track

There are various options on what to do next, including:

1. Fix 12111 and 13020 and move Web Storage to LCWD

2. Leave Web Storage as is and eventually implementations will match the 
spec

3. Do #1 in one version of the spec and keep #2 as a separate version of 
the spec (e.g. L1 and L2).

Comments on these options are welcome.

If you prefer #1, please indicate if you are willing to create a 
fix/patch for bug 13020.
