Two goals.

Use #1:

Use #2: There was also plans for a NetworkProcess based memory cache and ResourceBuffer was part of those plans.

As Antti also mentioned, the currently factoring is messy and can definitely be cleaned up, but it must maintain use case #1.

If we ever get around to implementing #2, we can add what we need at that time.
