The cache validator for deciding whether to update the cache for an
entire document might be different than the cache validator you need
to decide whether you can reuse the first 400 bytes you got the first
time before you dropped the connection. I'm willing to forego the
looser usage, but unless you tighten it up, you might not be able to
use the same identifier for both purposes.
