Why not?  (I know, but wait a minute)  There are generally 3 purposes for a 
web cache.  One is a file cache for bandwidth, and while a lot of RAM will 
help, that is probably out.  One is for logging, and a syslog function would 
be fine on a WRAP device.  And one is filtering which would also run on a 
WRAP device.  A cheap tiny box I could toss into an environment that would 
filter and log would be useful to a lot of clients.  Not saying it is 
critical, but just don't close the door yet.
