            Bug ID: 25710
           Summary: No Key Deletion
           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: kelsey.cairns@inria.fr
                CC: public-webcrypto@w3.org

There seems to be no way to delete a key object. An application might
create many keys during a session (e.g. symmetric keys for encrypted
chat or encrypted email) that it no longer needs. One should be able
to delete them.

Perhaps the intention was to allow the user to delete keys, like
cookies? If so, this should be clarified.
