Hi,

Thank you for answering.

I understand the concepts of w3c design. Cache transparency it an important
issue. But the set of functions dealing with cache entries are made public.
Among them meta information update, finding and deleting cached entries and
so on (why are they public?). Cached entry validation function is not provided
though. Validation w/o using a full blown request making mechanism is not
(If possible at all using public w3c methods. - That is what I am trying
to figure out). 

Also it would be very helpful is w3c could provide a function returning an
open stream handle which would allow operations like:
stream->ReadBytes(numBytes, buffer), stream->Reset(), stream->Seek(..). 
Implementing such functionality using w3c streams doesn't seem to be easy.

Thanks,

Olga Antropova.
