The recommendation seems valid for dynamic content, but it doesn't make sense in the context of the CDN.
Resources here are static and are always served with the same encoding, regardless of what the client requests.
Therefore it's not possible to get the "wrong" encoding from a cached version.
I hope this makes sense.
