Because, a long time ago, queries contained mostly user-defined
strings that were not likely to result in a later hit, so it wasn't
worth the effort.  Now, some web applications use a bogus query
string in order to override caching because of this default behavior.

It would be fine with me to change the default, but that may result
in very inefficient caches.  It is better to default to no-cache unless
it is specifically configured or indicated (cache-control) as cacheable.
