Clarifying: essentially that's a workaround for resources for which the 
actual cache information returned by HTTP GET isn't accurate, right? 
Which of course leads to the question: if the maintainers of a site 
can't get their cache information right, what makes you think they can 
get their HTML right instead?

Best regards, Julian
