In other area than computation, AI, etc... caching is generally used for multimedia applications. I consider it as a stupid technique in such area. Sensitive things should never be cached...
Cahe enable/disable shall be a setting - that is trivial to do.
Then the question of default rises.
Failure to cache things that the user expects to be cached, is really irritating - firefox bugged me for years, despite many attempts to force caching of everything...
We can also do something inbetween - e.g. have pop-up menu to swap current default setting for this item, or purge entire cache, or backup to another instance (say, from phone to your workstation across a local or ad-hoc wireless) any useful functions the user might want, with different defaults a click away :)
