Not a fair characterization of conneg. It would be implemented by  
having the (required!) 303 redirect point to either an HTML or RDF  
document based on client preferences. As Chimezie says, the HTML and  
RDF documents should point to each other.

Thus all communications are inspectable, and it's clear what the  
names mean -- there's one for the domain object, one for the HTML  
document, one for the RDF document.

-1 for this option as it doesn't work for Google and friends.
