I think there are two independent capabilities here:

1. A “repo” as a robust storage service to applications who want to be able to go quiet or stop running without the authoritative published data under their control becoming inaccessible.

2. A performance/robustness feature of a cache such that its content survive a disruption due to a power failure, reboot, etc.

We tend to use the term “persistent storage" for both of these - I would argue they are conceptually different but could be achieved by similar or the same storage service features used by the NDN software.
