This specification adds to the basic cache control metadata defined in RFC8006, providing content providers and upstream CDNs (uCDNs) more fine-grained control over downstream CDN (dCDN) caching. Use cases include overriding or adjusting cache control headers from the origin, bypassing caching altogether, or altering cache keys with dynamically generated values.
