I don't think "rebroadcasting" is the right model.  We saw it
simply as an ultra-low-bandwidth way of accessing the Web.
It acted just like any translating proxy, and it didn't even
have a cache.  Alternately, you could see it as performing
rendering on behalf of a client device that's not capable
of doing that itself.

(Yeah, I know this is way off-topic :)  I originally wanted to
point out that interactive services still exist even at this
low bandwidth, and that various notice and quine requirements
can be difficult to deal with in that context.)
