will you avoid billing user's traffic just because it was cached?  it's you
who cached it, not the user, you should benefit from that, not them.
(only by reducing costs and resulting lower prices)

this way your clients can pay less money for more traffic just because it
was in the cache already... 

and you even spend your time and money to bill them less.

not mentioning that DNS is rarely relevant when counting network traffic.
