[whatwg] AppCache can't serve different contents for different users at the same URL

'Named' cache groups under a single manifest url is an interesting idea.
Presumably the webapp would be generating the 'name' in the manifest file
based on a cookie value.
Another possibility is something along the lines of what is proposed in the
DataCache draft: the manifest indicates a cookie name, and the value of that
cookie determines the 'name' of the subgroup. And the value of that cookie
also determines which subgroup is enabled at any given time.
