> I am still concerned that this API is badly thought out.  It seems very complex for very little gain, and generally seems to be a solution for a problem that has not yet been demonstrated to occur in the real world.

Which api? The js api or the C++ one.

The js api has been discussed a lot here: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2011AprJun/0304.html

As far as usefulness, one potential example is in web gl implementations which may create 1m ArrayBuffers in workers and send them to the Document for rendering. Here's a demo https://cvs.khronos.org/svn/repos/registry/trunk/public/webgl/sdk/demos/google/nvidia-vertex-buffer-object/index.html While this isn't a real world example, it is something which is representative of a the types of things real world apps of this sort would like to do.
