------- Additional Comments From hno@squid-cache.org  2007-10-02 12:22 -------
Because you can not exchange the gzip:ed variant with the identity encoded
variant wihout causing breakage. The two do not mean the same thing to a
recipient who do not know how to handle gzip.

The two is only semantically equivalent for a recipient capable of handling
gzip, but not to HTTP in general as HTTP do not guarantee clients can handle gzip.

If they were semantically equivalent then there would be no need for conditional
mod_gzip compression, or the use of Vary, at least not other than to reduce the
load on the server under peak load...
