It necessary to be clear about HTTP and HTML requirements around caching.

>From step 7.2 of Section 6.9.4, a non-normative note says
[[
HTTP caching rules, such as Cache-Control: no-store, are ignored for the
purposes of the application cache update process.
]]

This contradiction suggests to me that all cache-related semantics need to be
specified to the same level of rigor. 

My proposal is to either be specific in a normative manner about the kinds of
cache semantics that must be ignored or may be permitted. The specific
semantics that are actually applied are then bounded in this range.
