2010-09-28 20:30:57: Description changed to '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.
