Hi Steve

Thanks for your comments. Just quickly to note that the UI you are using is out of scope of the activity of the checker task force whose work is limited to producing the underlying api. The UI you see has been put together by Dom who I am sure will be pleased to act on your suggestions :-)

I think that the "how to fix" idea is a really good one, in fact so good we have a set of these notes relating to the output of http://ready.mobi - see for example http://dev.mobi/?q=node/209 on cache-control headers. As you note, putting this information together is quite time-consuming and is not planned as a working group activity.

Jo
