ISSUE-121: Do not ignore HTTP caching rules

http-caching

Do not ignore HTTP caching rules

State:
CLOSED
Product:
HTML 5 spec
Raised by:
Maciej Stachowiak
Opened on:
2010-09-15
Description:
The HTML5 application cache bypasses HTTP caching rules. Some find this unacceptable:

"HTTP caching rules are _ignored_? What the hell? What's wrong with extending Cache-Control to support user-agent caching instead of coming up with an entirely new mechanism?"

The scope of this issue is the caching requirements of the HTML5 Application cache - specifically whether they should be kept as is, or changed somehow to work with HTTP's caching rules instead of bypassing them.
