I agree that they should be non-normative and that we should avoid
using MAY etc in them. However we should make sure that somewhere
there's a normative statement that says that implementations are
allowed to make .indexedDB be null, or that .open always returns error
for security and/or privacy reasons.

Probably in the IDBFactory and IDBEnvironment interfaces.
