That's less hand-wavy than I originally thought, but what do you mean by
"asset"? Are we abandoning human-readable URL's? To be fair, Facebook
might do that, but it still seems like a lose.

privacy-protected resources. It seems like that has to happen at some
point - especially if we want any homepage (like that
has both public and private data.
