Currently, the pubDate of the feed is always a new timestamp. This prevents the feed from being cached.

does the spec say either elt is required?

Both of the pubDate and lastBuildDate elements are optional, but the common practice is to use lastBuildDate (Blogger, Typepad, MovableType). The meaning of "lastBuildDate" is also more suitable here.

I take it that the headers are looked into for caching, but +1 on the semantics.
