I can't believe this scheme is practical. There are too many ways in
which your demographics could be unreliable by a factor of 'nnnn'
depending on how cache implementors interpret
	cache-control: MAX-uses=NNNN
that this seems useless to me.

Let those who care about demographics turn off caching until they can
get demographic information that they think is reliable. I don't see
any fast path solutions outside of this.
