I have; I believe both the WHAT sessioning and storage
APIs are complex and difficult to understand. I'm
swamped right now with work, but when things ease I
will prepare a longer response about these WHAT
sections.

Remember that specs are terrible places to innovate,
which is what these two sections of the WHAT draft are
doing. Instead, the WHAT group should keep an eye on
the AJAX/DHTML communities and see what home-grown
APIs are appearing to solve these problems, to pick
the ones that seem to be the most straightforward.
Otherwise we will end up with substandard ways of
achieving this functionality crystalized into the WHAT
spec.

Best,
  Brad Neuberg
