Quite likely there is many examples out there in the wild along the
lines of the pageviews counter example found in the RFC, but semantic
equivalence fits within "good enough from the servers point of view".
But probably not as many as there should be as most people don't
understand the cache model of HTTP until it's too late to make their web
application fit..
