Given that HTTP 1.1 Vary: header support is patchy, at best, if one 
wants a content negotiated page to be cached, and in particularly to be 
cached in shared caches, you must give it a unique name, based just on 
the URL, and you must respond to the negotiated URL with an end to end 
redirect to the negotiated version.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
