Saying nothing works.  "The user agent MUST select one auth-scheme
that it understands..."

Or you remove the MUST altogether, there's nothing saying that a user
agent couldn't just go off and make a cup of tea when it encounters an
WWW-Authenticate.

"The user agent selects one challenge that it can use..."
