CSS Validator Feature Request

I'm not sure quite how W3C does it, but I've noticed that the MarkUp 
Validation Results page (http://validator.w3.org/check/referer) is never 
cached. However, the CSS Validator Results page 
(http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer) I use always caches.  

This is a slight pain when trying to validate CSS, since I have to 
refresh the results page every time for my cache to update.  Or, 
sometimes, it leads to CSS errors, if I forget to refresh the results 
page.  The following are two ways I know to prevent caching.

    <meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-cache">

    <meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache">

You may consider adding a no-caching provision to the CSS results page.
