Yup, WebIDBFactoryBackend::open fails to make a database identifier for the file: opening origin and top origin.

This is because Safari ramps up the (don't)AllowFileAccessFromFileURLs restriction on file: url documents.

WebSQL has most certainly not been removed... works great in my testing, both http and file URLs.
