Phil, how then do you propose to deal with the following:

- RDFa
- web servers that (in full compliance with the spec[1]) ignore the Accept
  header and just send 200 with the only representation they have (try
  HEAD http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html with Accept:
  application/rdf+xml, pay attention to the Content-Length returned)
