Hi,

|the UA implements server-driven content-negotiation [RFC2616], it SHOULD 
set
|Accept-Language, |Accept-Encoding and Accept-Charset headers as
|appropriate; it MUST NOT automatically set the Accept header.

I don't understand this MUST NOT constraint, it's not the current behaviour 
of existing implementations - they seem to set it, and it's something I'd 
like to have, it's useful to know what things are accepted.

Cheers,

Jim.
