CC: Mark Nottingham <mnot@yahoo-inc.com>, Julian Reschke <julian.reschke@gmx.de>, Nikunj Mehta <nikunj@o-micron.com>
Since the CfC to stop work on DataCache was agreed, to make this status 
clear to anyone that reads this document via w3.org/TR/DataCache/, we 
should publish a WG Note for this document and clearly indicate work on 
the spec has stopped - just like we did with the Web SQL Database spec:

   http://www.w3.org/TR/webdatabase/#status-of-this-document

If anyone objects to this, please speak up by March 20 at the latest.
