Hi Nikunj,

Starting over since I think you misunderstood my question.

I do understand how Interceptor/DataCache works. And understand that
it's seamless and can (based on a decision made by the browser)
seamlessly intercept both XHR requests and <img src=..> requests.

What is not entirely clear to me is how you envision that authors will use it.

I.e. are you expecting authors to want to intercept XHR requests? Or
<img src=...> requests? Or <script src=...> requests?

I understand that all of this is possible, but my question is what you
expect people to do.

I hope that makes sense?

/ Jonas
