WWDC Keynote: HTML5 wide open for On-Rev & revServer

HTML5 local storage seems to present some security issues. At least raise
some serious ethical questions about how to use it and what for. 

I think basically users will eventually get .. (censored) unless one build a
specific control interface to give that power back to users.

For Rodéo apps, if each user shares a space on a common shared server, than
all the local datas of user X are accessible to all different rodeo apps, So
far I understood. Not reassuring!

Though, it's not clear to me if the key is the domain name or the actual
server : if I open a site with domainNameY.com and the site is actually
hosted on host.com, what will be the local storage named?

What I understood is : host.com will be the "primary" key for all local
storage. And using sub folders will not allow to restrict the scope.
