The problem of "*" or "*/*" or other Accept-* stars,
where the implicit or explicit <qvalue> is not the
smallest <qvalue> in the Accept-* list.

Including the special cases *;q=0, *;q=1, and *. 

This is an issue in its own right, not limited to
#113 and Accept-Language.  It is a wildcard-qvalue
issue.  2616bis should tell implementors what this
means.  If this is hopelessly non-interoperable the
concept of Accept-* wildcards could be deprecated.
