For what it's worth, my first reaction to "withNamedStorage" was that
it felt like the vocabulary of another language transplanted into
Javascript, and that it felt out of place.

That may be due to there being no comparable APIs like this in
Javascript yet (that I can think of) rather than the vocabulary
describing it, though.
