ISSUE-121 (http-caching): Do not ignore HTTP caching rules [HTML 5 spec]

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/121

Raised by: Maciej Stachowiak
On product: HTML 5 spec

The HTML5 application cache bypasses HTTP caching rules. Some find this unacceptable:

"HTTP caching rules are _ignored_? What the hell? What's wrong with extending Cache-Control to support user-agent caching instead of coming up with an entirely new mechanism?"

The scope of this issue is the caching requirements of the HTML5 Application cache - specifically whether they should be kept as is, or changed somehow to work with HTTP's caching rules instead of bypassing them.
