Ticket #296 (closed design: fixed)
Clarify 203 Non-Authoritative Information
|Reported by:||email@example.com||Owned by:||firstname.lastname@example.org|

The 203 status code's definition is vague; it could lead some people to believe that it's appropriate for any cached response.
8.2.4. 203 Non-Authoritative Information
The representation in the response has been transformed or otherwise modified by a non-transparent proxy [ref to p1]. Note that the behaviour of transforming intermediaries is controlled by the no-transform Cache-Control dirctive [ref to p6].
This status code is only appropriate when the response status code would have been 200 (OK). When the status code before transformation would have been different, the 214 Transformation Applied warn-code [ref] is appropriate.
Caches MAY use a heuristic (see Section 188.8.131.52 of [Part6]) to determine freshness for 203 responses.
