Hmm, I think this isn't different to what we have today with sources.
Today: FileGenerator, XSLTTransformer use a source as input
        For caching: this source provides a validity object
URLs: FileGenerator, XSLTTransformer use a url as input
        For caching: this url provides a last modified date
XMLSerializer in both cases returns a fake (or always valid) validity 
object/last modified.

Now, as I responded to Steven, last modified covers most use cases but 
not all of the use cases the validity object can handle. This is where 
we have to think about a good way to have the same.
