I agree, but I would have thought that web providers would have oved
the idea of making more money off less equipment. :-)

This is why I believe CDN type technology is proving to be more popular
than the original forward-caches. I fear though that more and more content
will end up defeating even local caches on small links, and THIS is a
big problem in my eyes.

Solve that, and the problem in the original email is solved ..
