[uf-discuss] Using an external resource for the include-pattern

I presume the "ease of implementation" is referring to a *parser*
grabbing the data from another resource. As far as marking up a
document, I don't see how the "vast majority of use cases" should
dictate this and it is certainly trivial to provide a
relative/absolute URL in the href (e.g.
href="http://www.csarven.ca#hcard") of the document.

Can the parsers perhaps store cookies on the client-side and minimize
the HTTP requests? I'm not well versed in FOAF but perhaps this is
related and I do wonder how it approaches this.

I would appreciate it if anyone could point me to the past logs on
this stuff. Thanks.
