As this improves performance and is very useful for production sites this is very annoying
for development circles.

You bet. :)

my solution would be:

1) if you use external entities, forget it, the cache will not be able
to reload
2) if you use the XPath document() fuction forget it as well, the cache
won't be able to tell if it needs to reload.
3) the cache will reload only on XInclude-type inclusion.

Comments welcome.
