Thanks for the answer, but cannot agree that the situation is
"unlikely on the real internet".  A simple example: a page containing
quotes and an image of the real-time dynamics of a stock. The data
change continuously, if to reload image, it will be async with text

And also take into account that "post" is becoming more and more popular 
in the net, as well as that sort real-time pages.

I still believe that cacheing the whole page would solve the problem.
Why not?
