Yes, let's have it tied to the instance on which setVersion() was called.

As Shawn pointed out that is consistent with the behavior that
database instances from different windows will observe. As Jeremy
pointed out that is consistent with the way object stores and indexes
are tied to a transaction instance. Also, the |event.source| will be
db1 in the given example, so it seems natural to allow changes only to
the database we pass in the event and no other.
