The savings would be the time allocated for extra openings and
closings of HTTP connections, so...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is it not that what is supposed to be
solved by the concept of a "persistent connection" as per HTTP1.1 ?

Well, HTTP1.1 persistent connections are supposed to give room for all
parts of cache mechanisms as they have already been implemented.

No need to change already available caching mechanisms as I see it,
just follow some well thought out recommendations (as in RFC2616)
and we should be all happy.

Why do we need to reinvent the wheel ?
