I knew about that, and we'll likely be interested in taking a look after HTML or WebApps takes it up and gets it into a standard, which I know there's interest in but it hasn't happened yet…
…but I still don't see how this affects media in the current app cache model.
I still look forward to seeing your bug, Sridharn!

>> Again, not sure precisely which dynamic mechanism you're talking about since you included no context in your email, but I don't see how a dynamic app cache mechanism is related to the app cache supporting media, which it does.
