Actually, browser caching is a function of the Web design tags, not the
server. So, the decision to allow caching is on the page creator. On
my own sites, I leave caching to the default unless there is a good
reason to disable caching. One site I used to run, a warranty form
processor, I disabled all caching -- at all levels -- because it was a
database-driven site allowing updates from multiple people at the same
time, so caching was highly inappropriate.
Caching use to bite me regularly when I was doing customer support.
Which led to the mantra "Clear the cache!"
