As Darin says, the intent is that ResourceLoader is the layer that  
knows about high-level networking stuff in the engine, ResourceHandle  
is supposed to be low-level and ignorant of the higher-level loading  
code. In my opinion, the right way to put in hooks that depend on the  
loading context would be to add appropriate ResourceHandleClient
