No, correct. It remains a fact that a resource representation comes from
an origin server in the first instance. The RDDL Roger's talking about
will come from an origin server. I had a qualifier about HTTP1.1 caching
in my first post, but cut it out, because caching is an optimization of
sorts. And web caching doesn't work well enough to counteract the
Slashdot effect or when software stops working because Netscape pull a
document of their server.
