Oh, I missed that the original bug included a few suggestions. Given
that both me and Jeremy independently thought of "indexValue" and
"primaryKey" I think that's a decent sign that they are intuitive
names. I happen to like "primaryKey" the most as it's really a key
rather than a value that we've got here.

For some reason objectStoreKey makes me think that it's connected to
the objectStore rather than the entry in it.
