The description indicates in what direction the CPM should get fixed:

not override it, as it is likely that the specific information

then the general CPM policies.
This is arguable, especially as it changes the current behaviour.
Maybe, it should be controlled by an additional configuration
I don't know if it is possible to have any sane policy about "what to
do if the response already has caching headers". First of all, when
should this exception policy trigger? Which headers should tell the
CPM that someone else already decided on caching? Secondly, what is
the behavior supposed to be? "Do nothing"? "DWIM"? This obviously
needs exact specifications and use cases.
* The CPM (and Zope's HTTP Cache Manager) must set cache headers
only based on the object that generated the (complete) response
entity and not based on other objects called during the request
(and probably only responsible for part of the entity).
As mentioned in my reply to your collector issue, there are fixes on
the CMF trunk already and you should look at those to see if they fix
