To paraphrase a discussion Kaldari and I just had on IRC:  since some MediaWiki
Javascript and CSS doesn't have a cache-control header by default, we currently
need some form of Apache config to add it if it's not there.  Unfortunately,
using the Apache config adds it in places we rather it wasn't.

The "right" way of fixing this is tracking down a lot of extension authors and
making sure they are always adding a cache-control header.  That's assuming we
should require that of extension authors; we certainly need it on the WMF
cluster, but that may not be required in many contexts.

Kaldari thinks it may be possible to fix this in Setup.php (i.e. making sure it
sends a Cache-control header by default).  This would allow us to turn off
ExpiresActive in the Apache config.
