This just means that upstream's caching instructions are more
important than proxy_cache_valid, right?

I'm not sure if I understand. Let's imagine some scenarios (I-M-S
stands for If-Modified-Since, L-M stands for Last-Modified):

1. Client sends I-M-S, Nginx has response in cache, cached response
has L-M < I-M-S, Nginx sends 304.

2. Client sends I-M-S, Nginx has response in cache, cached response
has L-M > I-M-S, Nginx serves response from cache.

3. Client sends I-M-S, Nginx doesn't have response in cache, sends
request to upstream, upstream's L-M < I-M-S, Nginx stores response in
cache and sends 304.

4. Client sends I-M-S, Nginx doesn't have response in cache, sends
request to upstream, upstream's L-M > I-M-S, Nginx stores response in
cache and sends response from upstream.

Am I right?
