We propably at some point will have to do a very careful review; and see
if it not makes more sense to make that an asf domain entry; even if
the first thing which happen is a re-direct which is cached client side
for a 'long' term. As I'd hate think what would happen if we have to pull
a certain file (say due to an honest error or oversight) and then have a
tool from our -own- making not follow through ' in the field' due to it
going to an outside URL.

Well - that is a lofty goal.

Just get your shoulders under it - and get it to work. Federation is not
-that- complex.
