If it does, then its broken. The presence of a query string shouldn't have any influence on caching, it means nothing other than "This URI could have been generated with a form and user provided data". has a query string, but the significant content of that page is likely to change less frequently then that of (which doesn't).

If a tool wants to do sane caching, then it should pay attention to HTTP's collection of cache control headers.
