I think there is a misunderstanding indeed :). The storage database list is
just an example. If I understand this correctly it is more about the ability to
query a site-wide favicon.

I agree that in the history case it was a mistake to rely on this design :(,
but I feel this case is different in the sense that it's just about exposing
something that exists by design.
