RE: AW: [xml-dev] RFC for XML Object Parsing

Call it what you may, HTTP 1.0 didn't have it.  It was added to HTTP because it was needed.
People relatively new to Big Data concepts may not realize that this "oid" concept is needed now.  Interesting that you brought up the  If-Modified-Since, you actually added to my argument unknowingly because the " If-Modified-Since" brings up the equivalent second keyword in this concept.  in addition to "oid" the second and ONLY other keyword in this is "UpdateTime" that sir is conceptually equivalent to " If-Modified-Since" further convincing myself that just as "ETag"and "If-Modified-Since" are part of HTTP and they function together - likewise "oid" and "UpdateTime" are to XML.
Arjun accidently brought up this excellent point.  I challenge you to search through xmlObjectFactory in the example I published here:
and notice how "UpdateTime" fits into the "oid" idea.
