I asked Ian about this when he added it. His plan is to wait for two  
implementations of the API as specified and then define the interoperable  
SQL subset among those two implementations. I assume that those  
specifications are then updated to match the common subset. So far we  
don't have two native browser implementations.

Since then the specification has been updated and included some notes on  
the subject, such as that some transaction statements are not to be  
supported, but SQL semantics, parsing, etc. will probably wait until we  
have two implementations. (Or a concrete proposal, I guess.)
