Or a cached copy?

Why bother with RESCAP when HTTP was designed to do this? For the
disconnected example, set up a HTTP proxy cache on your laptop,
configure your browser to use it, browse to resource so it may be
cached, and there you go. Other user agents on the laptop can be
configured to use the proxy too (e.g. JDK).
Don't be too concerned about "hot spots". Who knows, maybe whomever
maintains that document uses Akamai. Ain't abstraction wonderful?
