This new specification will have the same target timeline as the Web Crypto API timeline - but if no agreement is reached on it, it will not delay the Web Crypto API for being a Recommendation

+1 to the latter as latter if Mark has the cycles to get it out in the 
next 2 weeks. Note that in this case, we don't really need to keep the 
KeyStorage paragraph in the text if we have a clearly linked reference 
to Mark's document and that is published at the same time, as I was 
under the impression the second document by Mark would *replace* 
KeyStorage in a manner compatible with structured clone.
