My interpretation is also that it is OK to have alternative presentations
when they are all "served from the same bucket" as mentioned, and that this
is even a recommended thing.  There is a relevant current (WCAG 1.0)
Priority 3 checkpoint: 11.3 Provide information so that users may receive
documents according to their  preferences (e.g., language, content type,
etc.).  The techniques for this point mention CSS2 techniques and something
called "content negotiation" which is not entirely clear to me.
