           Summary: FileSystem/FileWriter API needs a method to flush/sync
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: File API: Writer
        AssignedTo: ericu@google.com
        ReportedBy: kinuko@chromium.org

Currently webapps cannot control when a flush/sync should be performed after
writes, so that it's not really clear what data would be read right after
writes.  The UA cannot make a good decision about when to flush/sync either. 
The API should provide a way for webapps to make sure the data they've written
are actually written to a persistent storage.
