I like your thinking. Another advantage of smart cacheing/storing is
the ability to work 'offline'. The trend is for 'apps in the cloud'
but I hate apps that 'must be' connected to the internet to function.
I can access my email account and this List via a web browser, but as
soon as I loose internet connection it's all gone. My email client
though downloads everything when it can and I can easily read emails
offline, and even draft replies. As soon as I'm reconnected to the
internet off they go.

Yes, I like smarter software.
