Hi there,

with <http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/changeset/2119#file1>, 
the spec now says:

"If no quality values are assigned or multiple language tags have been 
assigned the same quality, the same-weighted languages are listed in 
descending order of priority."

This is a change from both RFC 2068 and RFC 2616 which we *did* discuss 
back in the thread starting with <‚Äč 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-http-wg/2011OctDec/0223.html>; 
back then we decided not to make this change because we know of 
implementations ignoring the ordering, and no convincing argument was 
given for making the ordering significant.

I believe this change should be backed out.

Best regards, Julian
