Rowland Shaw seems to disagree with you.  I know that Lynx allows one
to construct the Accept Language header but he has confirmed that the
others you have listed only allow you to list languages in order, not
with user controlled q values (unless as undocumented features).

(The original, on  topic context, was suggesting that a feature allowing
Accept: header information, with q values, in the body of a document 
would probably not be very useful in practice, because q factors are
not used by many people.)
