[discussion of extending Accept header]

I would definitely like to be able to tell if a browser supports certain 
images inline (JPEG), and whether it supports tables or other new features.

How would the server deal with you asking for different colour depths? 
The server would have to know all the graphics files it has? and their 
formats?
