I don't know the answer to why sync interfaces are there and expected, except that some would argue that it makes the code easier to read/write for some devs. Since this is mirrored throughout other platform APIs, I wouldn't count this as a fault in IDB specifically.

Sync APIs are useful to do I/O inside of a Worker.

They're also critical for data consistency in some scenarios, e.g. updating the database after a successful xhr request when a worker is about to be terminated.
