I think it will be useful in passing some directives to browsers.
e.g. a client can be informed not to cache the particular resource, server is
dispatching to it.

Such a thing can be really useful in processing Clickable maps where we
have to launch CGIs anyway and we don't incur much overhead by specifying
extra headers.
