Caching Strategies in ArcGIS Server 10.2.2

I'm working on caching some services for consumption entirely within ArcMap, several of which are going to be extremely large, and I'm getting the warning about cache size being larger than 500MB. We have the space and staging server to handle this, but the default warning is leading me to believe that I'm not understanding caching best practices.

 

Since we can't cache to a certain extent and draw dynamically in others (right? This was possible in 10.0, but no longer?), it seems we either cache to the fullest extent or don't cache at all. Can anyone speak to their experience caching or otherwise serving up very large datasets for use in ArcMap? ESRI suggested I provide two services, one cached and the other not, with the extent visibility I'd like. That'd be fine for use in web mapping, but is pretty nonsensical in ArcMap.
