14.46 back-references to 13.1.2 (page 149):

"Requirements for the behavior of caches with respect to Warnings are stated
in section 13.1.2."

And 13.1.2 *does* distinguish between the cases, but I'm not immediately
convinced that it does so in a way that's compatible with the SHOULD clause
you reproduced above. It seems like a similar issue between the 13.1.2 MAY
and the 14.46 MUSTs.

I'd agree that there seems to be a lot of redundancy; all these different
locations seem to be trying to specify the same thing, or at least parts of
the same thing with overlap in between. But, how should we go about fixing
