We're trying out a system at PARC that has a similar problem. Our
tentative solution, translated to URL terms, is that one particular
scheme of URL is a list of URL's, any of which can be used to access the
document. This would allow the client to use whichever copy of the
document it ``decides'' is closest/cheapest. We also have different URL
schemes that allow us to say, ``look up this UID in a name-service of
this type'' -- indirection.
