ETAG headers can provide a huge benefit by

  • saving bandwidth with conditional gets
  • saving server load with a simple key value lookup

On a design perspective, ETAGs could be associated per row, with some uuid identification.

Some complexity might come with associations, where the ETAG should change when referred rows are modified, added or deleted. But the benefits should outweigh the costs.
