Well, there's a bit more work needed. To handle update requests
helpfully, your cache needs to be able to answer requests for deltas
between different versions, not just the texts themselves. So those
caches are going to have to be pretty smart --- if the caches can
produce deltas, I'd call that a distributed repository.
