Jeremy, All - Jeremy's suggestions below seem good to me so I think  
we should implement them.

1. Does anyone object to renaming WebApp's WebSimpleDB Component to  
IndexedDB? It appears I don't have the necessary permissions to add  
the new component so someone from the Team will need to help. Dom,  
who can I contact?

2. How do we handle changing the name of this spec's CVS directory? I  
think the simplest thing is for Nikunj to: create a new directory  
named IndexDB, copy the latest ED it WebSimpleDB/ to the new dir and  
stub out the WebSimpleDB ED with a message like "this is obsolete,  
see <a href="">Indexed DB spec</a> for the replacement spec".  
However, if there is another precedence we should follow, that's OK  
too, just elaborate.

OK?

-Art
