Subject: Re: [wsrp] Enable caching of resource content on the client

I think option 1 excludes the most common use case where e.g. JS libs, CSS
classes, etc. are loaded. We should still be optimized for a caching
infrastructure and offload a) the producer and b) the consumer itself.
I dont see why we should weaken that and provide a solution that from a
plain infrastructure and performance viewpoint is worse than 1.0.
I think the caching use cases are important enough to cleanly support them.

Alternative 2 sounds feasible, in that case we would need to modify the
EBNF of the resource URL.

Another third solution I see is to drop the support for having portlet URLs
in resources' markups.
We talked today about the symmetrical behavior of gR and HTTP resource
serving via the Consumer and the importance of having the same
functionality for both.
So enabling them in the one case while dissallowing them in the other seems
inconsistent to me.

What was the ability added for again? Afaik we tried to solve some Ajax use
cases with it, right?
On the other and we seem to say that a solution for Ajax won't be part of
the 2.0 spec and we need to understand it more.
So here again it would seem consistent to me that we dropped that
capability and continue the Ajax discussion and add the necessary items

                                       [wsrp] Enable caching of resource   
                                       content on the client               

As mentioned in one of the WSRP calls currently caching of content
served through resource URLs on the client is basically not possible for
resource that are served through gR.
Reason for this is that the resource URL that the consumer produces
needs to contain all nav state of all portlets on the page in order to
allow the gR call triggered with the URL to produce markup that contains
WSRP URLs again. This means that the URL will likely change for each
request and there will always be a cache miss on the client.
So basically there are two different use cases:
1. render a resource that contains no or only resource WSRP tokens
2. render a resource that may contain any WSRP URL token

Solutions I see:
1. say that the requiresRewrite is used to distinguish between these two
different use cases
drawbacks: excludes use cases that only use namespacing or resouce URLs
and would normally be cachable

2. introduce a new attribute wsrp-markupContainsPortletURLs to
distinguish between these two use cases
drawback: needs a spec change

If we decide to open the spec for fixing gR I would opt for 2. if not
stick with a clarification to allow 1.
