Yes, that would make things faster. For the moment, the caching  
behavior of the validator is to send its requests with "Cache-control:  
max-age=0" so that no cache between the validator and final server  
decided to send a cached and outdated version.


Having the validator use a cache would be nice, but complicated to  
implement. It's there in the todo, but some items there may or may not  
be implemented in the end.
