Jpp, that's true. What do you think: Should the server part be a service 
of crosswire (so it is hosted on their servers) or it is better do 
develop an easy-to-install server app, that everybody can install or 
host it by themself.

If we use indexedDB you can store their a compressed arrayBuffer/Blob 
(using zlib.js e.g.). Have you thought about how to make the keys for a 
key/value storage?
