   12.2 Agent-driven Negotiation

   With agent-driven negotiation, selection of the best representation
   for a response is performed by the user agent after receiving an
   initial response from the origin server. Selection is based on a list
   of the available representations of the response included within the
   header fields or entity-body of the initial response, with each
   representation identified by its own URI. Selection from among the
   representations may be performed automatically (if the user agent is
   capable of doing so) or manually by the user selecting from a
   generated (possibly hypertext) menu.

So it depends on the client's capability whether the 300 response body 
is shown to the user. Whether the Default Delivery Context, which models 
a very basic device/user agent, should be considered capable of 
performing automatic agent-driven negotiation, could be a question to 
the BPWG.
