I just went through the Editor's Draft and I realized that all functions
under window.crypto would be inaccessible from within Web Workers! I'm
sorry if this has been discussed before, but this could be a serious
problem and really limit the capacity of using web workers for CPU-intense
crypto operations. Perhaps we should move to a different namespace?

Let me know what you think,
NK
