Really? Is there a species of people who reads them? Anyway, users are 
_not_ supposed to do Windows Update "by hand" but to have their systems 
configured to download and install updates or to have their systems 
updated by procedures controlled by professionals. Besides, _telling_ 
about language negotiation is rather immaterial.

What matters is whether system software _prompts for_ information about 
the user's preferences when the software is first used by a person. It 
should tell what the information will or might be used for, but in 
non-technical terms.
