I'm keen to hear a response on this too.
I've been meaning to test out some layering where something behind
varnish determines a high enough 'hit' count and sets a header
indicating so. Without this header set varnish would simply pipe all
responses in vcl_fetch.
I've always assumed this was a valid thing to do in vcl_fetch, but I
haven't gotten around to testing it.
