We discussed such an API a while ago but decided to punt on it to v2.

It's nontrivial, but doable, to implement since I think that we should
guarantee that the list of databases returned in the success event should
be guaranteed to be the correct list until the success event handler
returns and that open/delete calls that happen during the success handler
should therefor be dependable.

I think both IE and Chrome has added prefixed functions in the meantime
though.
