cache-defeating - new form seen

I was just puzzling over some odd things I observed this evening,
when I realised that someone[*] has configured their server to return
403 Forbidden as well as a document's content, for their homepage.
Thinking about it, I imagine that if I was requesting the document
from within their network, I'd get its "real" content.

Certainly it defeats caching though.
