[ACTION-26] Using media type for content negotiation

As per our discussion today, I wanted to briefly summarize the issues 
relating to this action item...

Essentially, this comes down to how a client can tell a server what 
flavors of XHTML it supports.  We had discussed in the past using the 
profile parameter of the media type as a way of doing this.  In the end 
we recognized that what we should do is extend the RFC so that it 
describes this convention, perhaps format rules for the value of the 
profile parameter, and maybe even a reference to a w3c-hosted registry 
of xhtml family markup languages.  Such a registry would, of course, use 
RDFa.

I think this is the core of the issue.  Mark Baker indicated he could 
help us through the process once we know what we actually want.
