don't i look like a plonker now!
maybe i'll go do some gardening instead...

The header is just confusingly named, i keep thinking it's the  
"Accept-content-type-header-formats thing"

Images, and anything that refers to images would need to support it.
You may have existing content that is named foo-hires.jpeg and foo-

negotiation on the images themselves (so that old references don't  
need to be fixed)
