Julian, think more.  If there is no new information, what would the site 
owner configures it for?  If there is new information, configure Conneg 
(Accept) takes the same effort to configure LINK.

Neither Conneg nor LINK touched the original resource.

I think Pat has articulated for my viewpoint very well.  Our difference 
resides in our different viewpoint toward the architecture of the web.  
Our arguments can be either endless or none at all - depending if we 
start from one basic model.  Don't you agree?
