            Bug ID: 25621
           Summary: Provide better explanation for the concerns of Section
                    6
           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: sleevi@google.com

Section 6 was largely drafted prior to the extraction of explicit key storage,
and during the discussions of Named Key Discovery (
http://www.w3.org/TR/webcrypto-key-discovery/ )

This was raised as a concern during the W3C TAG review (
https://github.com/w3ctag/spec-reviews/issues/3#issuecomment-41521737 )

The security/privacy concerns of the base specification should be updated to
reflect the fact that
  - The core specification does not provide any notion of key storage or
persistent key access
  - There are significant concerns for any specification that does
