       What impact will time shifting of television content have on the URI scheme?
       Will the scheme allow referencing television content which has been cached
       locally and it not the current real time broadcast content?
    The scheme accesses those bits that are present at the receiver at the
    current time.  As such, time shifting is not visible to this scheme.
    The lid: identifier is used to reference the _content_ (rather than
    the bits) of the stream and may be used to address the cached contents.
