Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: While I really wish we could require that, browser vendors won't
implement it (because it requires unbounded caching) and the alternative (never
caching) isn't performant enough to be competitive with some existing browsers
(which cache). So unfortunately we're stuck in this annoying middle-ground.
