> Looking at the cited use cases in [1]... 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3 do not need bundling and are *much* better handled by the UA fetching granular resources based on the description in the package/manifest. In fact, even for 2.4 it's not strictly necessary: the package contents can be downloaded into a folder without forcing bundling within the package request. I think we need to revisit the use cases and clarify their intent...
