Henrik,

Cache-Control applies to the response. What the proposal is about is to 
enable the server to say that

(a) the response body (DAV:multistatus) is cachable for n seconds, while

(b) the substitute URL can be used for N seconds,

where N >> n.

So these are really different things.

Best regards, Julian
