Comment(by robertaccettura):

 1.  Not really sure a null image is really per-spec though it should work
 in all browsers without issue.
 2.  Will proxies and reverse proxies cache a request with a response of 0
 bytes?  Or will it hit origin every time?  If it's hitting the origin,
 that defeats the point.  Pretty sure many don't cache that.
 3.  The reason for setting cache is to ensure any proxy will keep it
 cached and offset load issues.

 The point here isn't design but to reduce load due to this operator error.

 If not the wordpress logo (which is good enough on wordpress.com's
 millions of blogs) then a transparent image would serve the purpose just
 as well.
