My belief is that the simple key-value store paradigm would still end up being the default client-side data storage utility, and would therefore benefit from having a per-key expiration time to mimic cookie usage.

I suspect it will be much easier to add to IndexedDB than to
localStorage/sessionStorage. I don't expect the latter to go away,
though generally it seems like people are disliking localStorage
enough that it's hard to get any changes made to it.
