Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

There's a simple way to do it: list the file in the manifest and give it a
manifest="" attribute pointing to the manifest.

We can't just fetch the file from the network then use the files from the
cache, because the files from the cache could be a year old by the time the
user goes to the page, and in that case the page is highly likely to completely
break if it's fetched in this way. This is a problem with FALLBACK-enabled
resources also, but there's no obvious workaround for those cases.
