This seems to me that this is some kind of add scripting habilities to
the AppCache manifest, while we already have Javascript, and allowing
it to do that will lead us to something fairly similar (in fact, a
sub-set) of what ServiceWorkers can do. Why duplicate efforts then?
Manifest files are good for static content, but for other cases there
are better tools.
