When using Virtualization.framework with macOS, content caching is unavailable. As macOS virtual machines using Virtualization.framework is now possible, it seems that content caching should be possible.

Trying to activate content cache on macOS inside a Virtualization.framework virtualized Mac fails with “virtual machine” as an error.
