We will at least review - in principle this is really useful for  
application developers.

(Comment 1 - why does this need to use callbacks?)

Making sure there are tests for the specification so it can be completed  
and anyone can use them to demonstrate interoperability between any two  
implementations...

Given the basic nature of the spec I guess it doesn't need to be an  
enormous test suite - the most complex question is probably checking that  
it really works as advertised with different types of storage. (Although I  
am not sure what the quota would actually *mean* for a database).
