Unnecessary user interface complication

big document usually binary (like .zip)
and text/plain or text/html rarely bigger than 500K
and tipically under 50K.

than rawdata (unless you have big comment inside),
I would rather prefer to reduce rendered document's cache
in favour of rawdata cache (CPU load is not so critical).
