Why can't the same "live" mechanism used for the root of a domain be used for a
manifest?

If the URL is not used to identify the manifest, and the content of a given URL
is static for all time, how would you know what URL to use to check to see if
the manifest changed?

Karl: We can't use redirects, the appcache system assumes those are a sign of a
captive portal.
