WAS DynaCache

It is from IBM research to cache pages in fragment or in full.
An interesting idea to do caching on view (MVC term) level.

However one thing bugs me is their cachespec.xml. I think the rules (cache rules, invalidation/dependency rules) described in XML are not very clear, esp. missing a 1 liner of condition (logic expression) expression that telling us when to cache and invalidate. It is quite tedious to read.
The right design to make it easier and readier is to use 1 liner logic experiession like BNF syntax. XML is just used for encapsulation only.
