Sorry, I hadn't reviewed the HTTPbis work.  So at that stage the 
question was more to the point of is it acceptable to mix the directives 
or not, and whether that was intended.

If it's covered in HTTPbis, then my question is answered, I have looked 
through HTTPBis, but it's still not quite at a stage to use it for 
implementation (lots of outstanding To-dos in there), so I didn't go 
through the Cache-Control sections.
