Off the top of my head, I dunno.  I was just giving examples to
explain that "I can't think of any other storage types" isn't a very
solid argument that there will never be any more.  I'm not actually
proposing that we implement any of these at this time.

Also, having read Robert's blog post now, I think he makes some good
points, especially w.r.t. feature detection.
