Yes, this is exactly what I was attempting to express. I hadn't
considered the HTTP Cache-Control header - didn't know if we should say
anything about caching, or leave that up to the implementers?

We could easily get a bit too heavy handed in the caching language...
maybe we should mention that implementers that have access to a caching
mechanism MAY utilize HTTP Cache-Control and ETags as it suits the
situation. Maybe even go as far as making it a SHOULD?

Shane summarized what I was trying to say quite well... I should
probably just have Shane speak for me from now on. :)
