I think this behavior is independent of whether you use an access-based
or modification-based setting. Basically, it should only depends on
whether the resource is served with a Last-Modified header (or an ETag),
which itself appears in Apache as soon as mod_expires is enabled
(ExpiresActive On + ExpiresDefault ...).

(but maybe I misunderstood what you were suggesting...)
