Re: [Bug 8252] HTTP caching rules are _ignored_? What's wrong with extending Cache-Control to support user-agent caching instead of coming up with an entirely new mechanism?

Out of curiosity, for a document like:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head><title>...</title></head>
<body>
<img src="myPic.jpg">
<img src="myPic.jpg">
</body>
</html>

and with a GET request to myPic.jpg returning cache-control:no-cache

Should this result in two requests being made to myPic.jpg? If not, is
that considered ignoring HTTP caching rules?
