Hello again after a long time...

I'm writting this email just to let you know that I'm convinced (based on all 
of your comments) that:

* Content negotiation is not a good idea (tm) and most probably won't be 
implemented.
* Timezone information should not be transfered because of the overhead that 
introduces.

So I'll let the timezone draft to expire and will not submit the content 
negotiation draft.

Thank you all for your time and your comments! 

Best regards,
Harhalakis Stefanos
