Replying to myself I just remembered that having an embedded variable
holding the value of fastcgi_cache_key/proxy_cache_key would be
awesome. Since that way using, for example, the embedded Lua module we
could easily manage the cache from within Nginx without having to do
additional HTTP requests.

The Nginx cache is simple: just a bunch of files. So IMHO the cache
purging should be as simple as possible and not having to issue
additional requests for purging.

I guess this is a feature request :)
