Martin, are you commenting on the original or the new proposal that removes
payloads from the package? FWIW, I think the new proposal (just the URLs of
resources, no payloads), removes the performance concerns and defers them
to the transport layer (where they belong)... which leaves us with just
usability - e.g. a single URL for sharing/distribution of some bundle of
files.
