We want to standardize interception of HTTP requests inside Web  
browsers so as to allow applications to do their own interception and  
seamlessly access data on-line and off-line. This is primarily  
targeted at improving availability of data used by Web applications  
and improve their responsiveness.

More specifically, we want to propose a specification for the  
following APIs

1. Programmable HTTP cache
2. Intercepting HTTP requests

I am attaching a concrete proposal for the above APIs and the same can  
be found on our Web site at http://www.oracle.com/technology/tech/feeds/spec/bitsy.html 
. We offer these inputs, under the terms of the W3C Patent Policy, to  
strengthen the current WebStorage working draft and address the  
requirements for offline data access in user agents. Our proposal is  
complementary to existing drafts being considered by the WG including  
WebStorage, WebWorkers, and Server-Sent Events. Collectively, these  
proposals can provide a sound basis for developing standard Web data  
synchronization techniques.

If the WG agrees to add these APIs to the WebStorage specification, we  
will commit resources to augment the specification work for WebStorage.
