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!"
