FWIW, I think your approach is the right one..... Treat caching as an
optimisation. Wait until it's a measurable problem, then tackle the
hot spots.

There are several messages in the mailing list archives explaining how
to set these headers. Im still planning to write that HowTo one

These products that cache stuff internal to Zope are great if you need
zope to process the cached data (from your desciption, you dont)

If you need to cache whole requests, then the best approach is to
understand and use the http cache headers. If processor load is your
main problem, an external http cache is a big advantage too (I use
squid, see http://www.squid-cache.org)
