There's a thought David. This form of content negotiation is already
implemented in the HTTP header via the language parameter. Couldn't a
similar parameter be added to determine the content presentation? Obviously
this would be ignored by most sites, but if you were able to specify in your
browser that you wanted content delivered in an accessbile format and the
sites of the future supported it then it would be a good solution surely?
Just a thought. The more I think about it the more I'm seeing direct
parallels between accessible format and "normal" and language and "normal"
version of a site and this problem has already be solved! It could also be
added easily with NO side effects.
