--- Comment #21 from Alexey Proskuryakov <ap at webkit.org> ---
It's not really a choice about platonic vs. pragmatical, it's simple layered software design.

If you want networking to implement a policy that is easy for other engineers to understand, if should have a descriptive name (not "whatever XHR needs"), and the policies should be as centralized as possible, not scattered across multiple frameworks and processes.

In other words, policy decisions are made before a ResourceRequest is passed to NetworkProcess. It should be especially straightforward in this case, where you just want to inhibit caching.
