Push doesn't imply anything about the resources having to be in a resource 
tree or anything like that. It is just objects the server can offer to the 
client before the client asks for it themselves.

If clients are likely to want both these files after having asked for 
"recursive.html", then I'd say (B) makes the most sense and (A) seems a bit 
limited. But ultimately, that's up to the server to decide.
