An update on the noarchive: I added it to the site early yesterday morning, and the site was visited by both Googlebot and msnbot (Yahoo don't love me!) during the day. This morning, MSN Search is showing the same pages in the same positions with a fresh date and no cache link. Absolutely no movement whatsoever, no negative effect at all for MSN at least. Google isn't showing anything new as yet.
