What determines a "static asset"

RE: What determines a "static asset"
There are 2 sets of optimization checks within WebPagetest. The grades at the top of the page are done by WebPagetest itself but the query parameters rule is from Page Speed which is integrated with WebPagetest (as well as being available as a plugin for Firefox). They have a Google group available for discussing things with the dev team:

As far as static vs. dynamic, it's because it looks like the resource is cachable (making it "statc"). You need a pragma: no-cache and/or a cache-control: no-cache header for it to really be a dynamic asset. As far as the tools are concerned there's not really the concept of "sort of static but might change at some point" - we treat those like js/css where they should be cached and versioned.

If it doesn't make sense for your particular site, don't take the checks as Gospel. They are guidelines and recommendations but there are always exceptions.
