You can't get around it really. It's the fault of the author who hasn't
followed the correct spec.

A direct browser -> broken CGI session will also result in the output
from the CGI being cached to local disk.

It's up to the author of content to follow the specs, not the end user or
intermediates to interpret "what they really meant to do".
