Reviving "Expires" is already a long shot, renaming it is a
waste of everybody's time.  I just checked usefor-usepro-09,
it doesn't even mention "Expires".

Of course not; usepro doesn't define header fields.  Header fields are
defined in usefor.  From draft-ietf-usefor-usefor-11.txt:

Indeed, because Usepro does not specify any protocol action that has to be
taken when this header is encountered (and if it did, it would only be a
"MAY"). The Usefor draft tells you everything you need to know about it.
