 | I think it should be feasible to issue this sort of request:

 | GET /food/blah HTTP/1.1
 | Host: example.com
 | Accept: application/rdf+xml
 | 
 | In theory, this should return /food/blah *only* in rdf+xml.  This request
 | should return different results than a "regular" http/html request:
 | 
 | GET /food/blah HTTP/1.1
 | Host: example.com
 | Accept: text/html, */*
 | 
 | 
 | I know that many servers don't respect the Accept: header, but it sure seems

 | Thoughts?

 I like its minimalistic nature. However, a generic web page might
 have rdf embedded in it. Worse, it might be a xml-rdf resource itself
 not its meta-information. 

 So, using Accept:mime-type to differ from resource and resource's meta-info
 might lead to ambiguity IMO.

 cheers,
 Senra
