The note below from Noah with comment from Larry should go on the public list
so we can debate next steps for the Local Storage work.

We discussed this on last week's call and, I think, Jonathan, recommended "scholarship"
in the sense of documenting what is out there, what people are doing and discussing
good and bad practice.  Jeni pointed us to a blog that compared and contrasted AppCache
with Web Storage that may serve as a model in content if not in style:

I think that's probably a good way to start, but I still think it's important that the TAG focus on issues and "practices" that have architectural impact or raise architectural concerns. I don't think it's appropriate for the TAG to be building, e.g., primers on using IndexDB in Web clients, even if the community were to need one.

So, I suggest that if we are to be driven by documentation of current practice we should:

1. Survey what people are doing, what seems to be working well, where there are challenges, etc.
2. Highlight specifically practices or challenges with implications for Web architecture, and then decide whether the TAG should focus further on any of those.
