The specification mandates this rotation. Maybe there is a bug in some browsers? 
Or this rotation mechanism might not kick in if extensions implement this clean-up purely by injecting JS that deletes all the databases (what about the HTTP cache though?).

> So, hashes instead of UUIDs sounds fine; but constraining the entropy of the input to those hashes would be a very useful step that seems like it could be some middle ground / way forward?

This is fine to me as long as we do not add needless constraints to browsers implementing partitioning. This seems somehow hard to spec though.
