A problem I've been turning over in my head is dealing with "distributed origins," content libraries which are logically a single origin but are too large to actually be managed by a single host.  There are several obvious examples on the Internet at large.  An extension to Alt-Svc seems like a potential avenue to address it, but other properties of Alt-Svc would require other modifications to work smoothly.

This draft explores the problem and looks at one possible solution set.  I'm not totally happy with that solution, because it has too many moving parts, but I still see it as a useful starting point.  I'd be interested to have feedback from folks, and ideas for other ways to address the scenario.

   Certain content libraries are logically a single origin, but too
   large to be practically served by a single origin server.  This
   document discusses existing solutions and explores possible
   directions for future protocol development.
