There was a thread about using NNTP to distribute "broadcast" documents.  
On a different note, it brings up something I haven't seen much about 
(other than the Aliweb mechanism), which is server-server communications.

Could there be a "privileged" PUT that allowed a master proxy to update 
someone else's cache, a la a distributed proxy?  This is getting into 
server-side agents, but it doesn't seem that far-fetched.  Especially if 
controlled by the server's ACL.
