Hello there, 

I write this email to let you know about our surprise when we saw that the Web SQL Database is no longer part of the html5 specification. 

Having experienced the Google Gears plugin, which implement the WebSQL Database, I can tell you that having SQL both on the client and the server side, even if the SQL is not exactly the same, makes it very practical to deal with synchronisation problems between client DB and Server DB (for example you execute an update statement on the client side, and then you report almost "as is" the statement on the server side). 
Dealing with "Indexed DB" will make this kind of stuff very hard... 

Is this part of the spec really going to disapear?
