Hi there. The CORS spec currently indicates that the preflight cache should
store preflight responses for a particular origin/request url pair. That
means that multiple requests to different urls on the same domain will
always trigger a preflight, even if the preflight response is exactly the
same for those urls. If a server only accepts a set of well defined http
methods and http headers, then issuing the preflight on different requests
is redundant.

I was wondering if there could be a way for the server to indicate what
scope the preflight applies to? For example, the default could still be to
cache per origin/request-url, but maybe the server could set a special
"Access-Control-Max-Age-Scope: domain" response header to indicate that the
preflight response can be used for any request to the domain. Has anything
like this been considered?

Thanks,
Monsur
