Only as a thought (not really part of this discussion), it would be 
nice to see the future of HTTP allow the client to send a 
Content-Type request:

GET index HTTP/1.2
Content-Type: text/html

This would allow the server to return different resources by the same 
name with different rendering attributes.  Consider:

<a href="world" type="text/vrml">VRML World</A>
<a href="world" type="text/plain">Description Of World</a>

That might be interesting to see...
