The main thing blocking the publication of errata is a commitment from
someone to actually do the work. I also think Ian's automatic push of
commits from the WHATWG version of Web Storage to  was stopped a long
time ago so there could be additional changes to be considered, and the
totality of changes could include normative changes. Did you check for
these later changes?
If you, or anyone else, would like to help with this effort, that would
be great. (If it would be helpful, we could create a new webstorage repo
under github/w3c/, work on the errata in that repo and redirect the
CVS-backed errata document to the new repo.)
Personally, I think putting errata in a separate file - as opposed to
putting changes directly into  - is mostly "make work" and fails the
"principle of least surprise". However, I think the consortium's various
processes preclude us from doing what I consider is "the right thing".
