            Bug ID: 25577
           Summary: The interface name "Key" is very generic
           Product: Web Cryptography
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Web Cryptography API Document
          Assignee: sleevi@google.com
          Reporter: bzbarsky@mit.edu
                CC: public-webcrypto@w3.org

In particular it can be confused with indexeddb keys, ES6 property keys, and so
forth.

It may be better to call it something like "CryptoKey".  Ryan also suggested
"WebCryptoKey" or "KeyHandle"; I suspect that it's best to make it clear that
this is a key for crypto, as opposed to hashtables or databases, so "KeyHandle"
isn't a good choice....
