I agree, I regretted not making a note about cache data. Caches are
temporary stores, if it makes sense to export them to a more permanent
states then that would be where they'd translate into user data.

As an example, pidgin's user lists and profile images are cache,
unless the contact is tied to a standard address book system where the
profile image could be stored in the right place it's not permanent
and is more of a state of the application.
