See https://github.com/whatwg/storage/issues/4 for that discussion by
the way. However, currently network storage (cookies and HTTP cache,
though not the service worker Cache API) is out of scope of storage
API stuff as it is not origin-bound and has its own special logic.
However, we could consider a clearing API for it nonetheless.
