[Paul Leach] A proxy is "configured" for the Accept-Language headers of
the requests it makes by the requests it receives.

[Paul Leach] Back to what William said:
I'd suggest we please leave the existing text alone and leave it to the
implementor to determine if and how Accept-Language should be presented.
[Paul Leach] I suggest they follow the intention of the spec, which is
clear enough.
