     This section ("Authoritative caches") has been removed. In its place,
a paragraph in section 2.3.2.1 has been added:

Note that it is impossible for a client to accurately predict the amount of
latency that may affect
      an HTTP request. Thus, if the policy reference file covering a
request is going to expire soon,
      clients MAY wish to consider warning their users and/or revalidating
the policy reference file
      before continuing with the request.

     We believe that this captures the original intent behind the section
you referenced, without making inaccurate claims about the nature of HTTP.
