IndexDB doesn't work on any mobile device yet.
Nor does this extension. APIs aren't introduced to the Web because another API "doesn't work yet". That's short-sighted, and the new API you define won't become available in production browsers any more quickly than the one you're waiting for.
There may be plenty of reasons this extension is useful, but "because IndexedDB isn't available yet" isn't one of them.
The rest is a bit tangential, but I'll respond to one a couple things anyway:
