Why can't the app just request the resource from the server with the correct
URI to start with?

I'm a bit fuzzy on the use cases you have in mind for ResourceStores in

"Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred
denarii, and the other fifty. Neither of them had the money to pay him back,
so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?"
Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled." "You
have judged correctly," Jesus said. [Luke 7:41-43]
