Local persistent cross site javascript/css (possibly any resource that has a
src attribute) cache browser that validate based on signature? Something like 

<script type="text/javascript" src="/scripts/jquery-min-1.3.3.js?v=132"
local="com.jquery.min.133.js" sig="eaa41fbd734596533e98e557eae39b8b" />

The browser comes with copies of commonly used libraries or has access to a
repository or downloads them from anywhere and validates sigs, using the same
code where sigs match. 
Implementation suggestions and why this is better than a normal cache
