Paul Hethmon points out an error in my previous message:

Paul reminds me:
    Section 14.9.2 provides for use of "no-store" in either request 
    or response messages: 
     
         The no-store directive applies to the entire message, and may 
       be sent either in a response or in a request. If sent in a request, a 
       cache MUST NOT store any part of either this request or any response 
       to it. If sent in a response, a cache MUST NOT store any part of 
       either this response or the request that elicited it.
