Yup, that would be very nice, but to make any really intelligent guesses
as to how often you want these to be refreshed, you need Last Modified
headers for calculations and/or IMS requests.

Which reminds me to ask (and to point this out to Duane, as his URL is affected by this as
well), how does one get Apache to generate valid Last Modified headers
for directory listings like these? CERN does it right and uses the
directory date, but Apache just leaves things blank, thus resulting in
stale data ever so often. :(
