Currently, Cocoon cached response ( does not store 
headers. If you move this functionality into serializers, then on the 
second request to the same resource, when resource is not modified and 
served from the cache, response won't have any headers at all - because 
serializer was not invoked.

Actions (and pipelines), OTOH, are invoked each time, on each request, 
so they work Ok now.
