I expect this was to counter the effect that "recursively" called
templates could trigger the CPM as well. If the CPM is activated
before the actual rendering, then these "recursive" activations
would override the effect of the "top" activation.
The latest CMF version tries to detect "recursive" activations
and suppress them. Nevertheless, your proposal would not be
safe, as shown this this example:
You have a script "someScript" with the following body
then the call to "someTemplate" may override the "Cache-Control"
set before, even with your proposal.
Of course, the script could set the header after the template call --
*IF* it were aware of the danger. However, I doubt that this will be the
