Hi Bryan,

I don't understand this rationale:

<<
2) PROPOSED RESOLUTION: Proxies MAY rewrite links, where content
transformation is permitted, providing that content domain origin
distinctions are preserved by the proxy.
-1 : Rationale is that scalability and basic ability to dynamically
extend the link rewriting support to new sites will prevent a subdomain
approach from being feasible. Link rewriters that I have worked with use
URL path tokens associated with the original URI, which is scalable
since there is no dependency upon DNS.
>>

Can you explain please (maybe an example)?

thanks,

ROb
