Hi Drew,

Thanks for the detailed proposal, it's great to have one.

Prior to diving into threading details, I'd like to clarify a  
background assumption that doesn't seem to be mentioned in the  
proposal. How does a SharedWorker relate to the browsing context that  
created it? Specifically, we probably don't want a SharedWorker to be  
a top browsing context, because that would be an easy way to subvert  
same origin cookie policy. And since loading in WebCore can only  
happen when there is a Frame, what will happen to a SharedWorker whose  
original frame goes away?
