Dear editors of [Part6],
dear working group members,

I've written a draft about an improved caching mechanism in HTTP 
especially for shared caches (to improve caching efficiency and reduce 
costly Interdomain traffic). It can deal with personalization (e.g. 
cookies, session IDs in query strings) and varying URLs due to load 
balancing or the use of CDNs. The caching mechanism ensures that all 
headers (request and response messages) are exchanged between origin 
server and client even if the real content is coming from a cache.

The draft is available under the following URL:


I kindly request you for comments - thank you!.
