See <http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.9.4>:  What
you describe for the current behaviour is termed "Unspecified end-to-end
revalidation".  What you describe for the preferred behaviour is termed
"Specific end-to-end revalidation".  The paragraph preceding the definitions
suggests that specific end-to-end revalidation should be used when a local
cached copy of the resource is available, which would appear to be in agreement
the approach you suggest.  I suspect that the current behaviour that WebKit
uses is determined by the CFNetwork stack it uses for HTTP rather than in
WebKit itself.
