I wonder if we should move away from the expires vs. cache issue and just
explicitly disabling the cache. Netscape does this already with a pragma
directive - with dynamic documents (say an order form where you don't want
the history to point at an old version) I use both that expires and the
nocache directive just to be sure.

I'm not sure which upsets me more: that people are so unwilling to accept
responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager to regulate
everyone else's.
