Yes, add this to the negative list.  Possibly your stylesheets don't change
as much and it's reasonable to put them in a shared, well known location
with an HTTP url.  A filesystem still is your best choice if you can do it.

There really isn't a great way to use files in a clustered environment
though.  A shared file system still has problems of being a single point of
failure and solutions like a Clarion array are *very* expensive.  

That last 5% in a 24x7 requirement is tough 8^(
