Re: [Bug 8252] HTTP caching rules are _ignored_? What's wrong with extending Cache-Control to support user-agent caching instead of coming up with an entirely new mechanism?

If Ian is unwilling or unable to fulfill your request, then I  
recommend you escalate this to the issue tracker instead of chain- 
reopening the bug. Or if you'd rather take another shot at handling  
this through the bug process, perhaps you could make a proposal for  
how the spec should handle this issue. The proposal can be sketchy on  
the details, but perhaps a little more detailed than what you say above.
