Is anything like this planned for HTTP 1.1? or 1.2? 
It might be easier to get something like this into a standard if somebody
hacks up part of the solution and runs it for a while as I described
with redirects. Then the standards makers can say, "Hey here is a great
idea and we can solve all these problems with it by incorporating it into
HTTP 1.2".
