In MZ's notes, it says "A RESTFul design may be appropriate when a caching infrastructure can be leveraged for performance..."
So, can SOAP-based design use a caching infrastructure as well?

I think that sentence is misleading at best. While REST APIs can make use of existing HTTP caching mechanisms, that may or may not be a good reason to prefer REST over SOAP. It is unlikely to be the most important criterion when making the choice. Furthermore, HTTP-based caching is less prevalent than other forms of caching that can be used by both approaches.
