I agree, I filed a bug about this a couple of months ago for Konqueror in case 
anybody wants to vote on it or add comments:

I'd also ask people to take caching into consideration when evaluating content 
negotiation - is it really more useful to serve application/xhtml+xml to a 
minority of visitors when it lowers the effectiveness of caching?  Wouldn't a 
better short-term approach be to serve XHTML 1.0 / App C or HTML 4.01 to 
everybody, regardless of their accept header?
