Peer-to-peer (P2P) applications have become widely used on the
Internet today and make up a large portion of the traffic in many
networks.  In P2P applications, one technique for reducing the
transit and uplink P2P traffic is to introduce storage capabilities
within the network.  Traditional caches (e.g., P2P and Web caches)
provide such storage, but they can be complex (e.g., P2P caches need
to explicitly support individual P2P application protocols), and do
not allow users to manage resource usage policies for content in the
cache.  This document discusses the introduction of in-network
storage for P2P applications and shows the need for a standard
protocol for accessing this storage.  This document is not an Internet 
Standards Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.
