I just asked one ICAP person. He says ICAP doesn't
address the questions I had. He suggested me to go to
OPES for more details.

I agree this should be the approach when we are
dealing with a content adaptation server (CAP) that
doesn't have a close tie to the original web server.
For example, the CAPs that does translation, virus
scan, etc. This is also the approach adopted by
Geetha's patch.

But for the CAPs that modifies the content or the ones
that map different client to different URL, e.g.
i-mode URL for cell phone client, another URL for PDA,
they have closer tie to the original server. Therefore
I would think some kind of interaction between
original server, CAP and squid will have to be in

Again, this depends on the closeness of the CAP to the
original server.
