You're asking whether, when the server has reported that it doesn't have 
the resource that the user agent asked for, the user agent should render 
the resource? Isn't the whole point that the user doesn't have the 
resource? Or are you asking whether, when a server has told the UA that 
the resource is unavailable, the UA should render the resource being used 
to report the lack of a resource, as the resource?
