ICP will give you a certain (small) percentage of false hits. These
things tend to go both ways, and the little bit that you fetch through
each-other from those false hits is nothing to worry about. That
percentage is drastically increased, however, if you and your peer use
different cache policies (refresh_patterns), then you might wind up with
a worrisome imbalance.
