Linked Cache Invalidation

"Linked Cache Invalidation" defines two new link types (invalidates and inv-by) that indicate relationships between resources in terms of cache invalidation, along with a HTTP cache-control extension (inv-maxage) that takes advantage of those relationships to use them to extend response freshness. Collectively, this is referred to as Linked Cache Invalidation (LCI).
