Another ignorant question:  If an origin server honors the 
"return-representation" preference in a PUT request, does this alter the 
statement in HTTPbis Part 2 that PUT responses are not cacheable?

In other words, is there a way to make the response suitable for a cache 
to use it to satisfy subsequent GET/HEAD requests, in the same way that 
POST responses can be?
