Right, I could just as easily have written a user story as: "I want all 
locations to load fast".  IMO a single well implemented cache module 
should optimize for the access by a user over time against changing 
data.  That's the function of a cache in the first place.  It's possible 
that the seperate caches in the client are limiting the usefulness of a 
cache at all and a single well implemented cache would do the trick.
