I am starting to think that Mozilla will step up and provide an embedding of SQLite, even if it has to only think of it as such. It will have to.

People would rather use a working database than something crippled albeit "specced" (see LocalStorage or IndexedDB).

It was things like XHR in all their unspecced glory that brought the web to where it is today.
