if you're
carboned on a message, then you're a bystander, and your perusal is neither
urgent nor critical.  In my opinion, don't send a vacation response if your
address is in Cc:, only if it's in To:.

Fair enough.

Playing Devil's Advocate here: What if I have emailed someone and cc'd that person's boss because I need the boss's buy-in on what I'm asking? The person knows their boss has an OoO program telling everyone that the boss is away, and assumes I get an OoO, and so doesn't tell me directly. So, I'm sitting there waiting for the boss to reply, not knowing that the boss is gone.

IMHO, replying to a CC is an individual matter that each person should decide when setting up their OoO based on how often that person is CC'd on matters of importance.
