They is a cache for the changeset → fnode mapping. And this cache is 
exchanged over the wire so I've not worried. Worst case we'll need a 
pass to strengthen the cache warming at commit time (as part of the 
"better use the cache before getting out of experimental"). So overall 
we should not triggers full manifest read.

Does this address your concerns?
