We've been near here before. Consider 

"Identifying Composite Media Features"
               http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2938.txt
uses hashes of feature set lists
   (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2533.txt)

and "MIME Content Types in Media Feature Expressions"
    http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2913.txt
   
in conjunction with
"Transparent Content Negotiation in HTTP"
   http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2295.txt
