This you need in case if storage node does not specify correct content 
type (and it usually does not). The content type will be then resolved 
via request URI extension.

This prevents nginx from accumulating response in memory or writing ont 
disk, thus saving resources which were already used on storage node.

It is possible to enable proxy_buffering and I don't know what impact on 
performance it will have. And it is not possible to cache the URLs 
returned by the tracker, but might be possible to cache the returned 
entity itself.
