You _are_ performing negotiation at the server! Just becuase you are
performing it in software executed by the server rather then the
server configuration doesn't mean you can safely take "I do not accept
application/xhtml+xml" but only pay attention to "mumble mumble
application/xhtml+xml mumble mumble" and decide "It mentions
application/xhtml+xml therefore it must be OK to send it".
