It also slows development down, at least a little, as I tend to make 
incremental changes and then refresh to see the effects, no-op links 
tends not to be available after 1 or 2 calls :)

I browsed the HTTP specs, it seems that an expiry period of 1 year (and 
not more) is recommended for pages that do not expire. I tried this and 
it seems not to work. I also see something about returning a 304 Not 
Modified in response to a conditional GET, so probably someone more 
familiar with this can try/give some suggestions otherwise I'll 
probably come back to this (much) later. It seems that Safari exhibits 
the same behavior.
