The intent here is to leave this up to HTTP. I've updated the spec; it now says
that user agents _should_ honour HTTP caching semantics, but _may_ employ cache
defeating mechanisms.

In practice this is something I expect UA implementors to tune to fit the
balance of reliability and bandwidth efficiency that they feel best represents
their users' needs.
