Our current cache isolation relies on a cacheKey hack to isolate the content cache per domain. This requires an on-modify-request observer in javascript that could be done in C++ instead.

We should implement something that sets this property directly in C++. Or perhaps we should see if we can leverage the new concurrent Private Browsing mode code to isolate both the image and content cache with much less complexity than our current patches.

See also #8167 for some related issues with the current content cache implementation, especially issues with dealing with OCSP and other non-windowed urls.

Also see, which has to similarly deal with these same windowless URLs. We may be able to re-use some of its detection logic for them.
