The spec is also not very clear on exactly for what server/origins the client 
should send this proposed header to. Above here you seem to imply that it 
could be to more servers than the origin that sent the first response header? 
And for how long? Forever?

I'll join the choir: this sounds like cookies - with more holes in the spec.
