There seems to be some confusion. 
Caching in HTTP applies to caching the results of all requests.
As for an extraordinary mechanism to allow one side to
signal that an operation is safe and not repeated, look at
RFC 2301 (Experimental) the "Safe" response header.

The discussion seems to be mixing up cachability and repeatability.
