If I understand you correctly, every asset request by the client will be
sent to the agent domain, which will contact the resource domain, fetch the
asset, and forward it to the client.

That doesn't seem scalable.

Are you sure you're interpreting the design correctly? It doesn't seem to me
that the agent domain could be doing the proxying you're suggesting.

That means that you wouldn't ever be able to log on to Opengrid and teleport
to Secondlife, no?

Pirates Bay would be an extreme case, but the same logic would apply to
every other agent domain.
