Often it would be useful if cache data were gzipped. The memcached backend limits key values to 1 mb in size and it is not unreasonable to want to cache a larger html page. Also, html data compresses really well so a 1 mb html file might be just 50 kb compressed which is very important if the amount of memory you have available is limited.
