The current resolution of issue 442 [1] allows extensions to provide
protocol-dependent metainformation and context, but nothing is defined.
An extension for HTTP (the most common case) or a subset of MIME-based
protocol.
One use case is an automatic update of a mesh of HTTP caches where a
notification can carry a HTTP entity body and all meta-information (and
context) needed for a HTTP cache.
Thanks,
