Plans for requestFileSystem support in browser?

I have a small html5 app which I would like to run locally on my phone. But it needs to retain (a few bytes of) context between each invocation. The app is purely local, doesn't interact with a web site and, most importantly, must work in airplane mode. So storing the data on a web site won't work.

Are there any plans to support requestFileSystem?

I believe this is important if HTML5 apps are to be supported.

For simple things you can use Web Storage for storing offline content in Sailfish Browser. See: http://html5demos.com/storage

For more complex data you can use HTML5 indexedDB.

We haven't yet looked into File API, but will surely study it as soon as higher priority issues have been solved.
