% Content Negotiation goes beyond browser type, but user type as well.  For
% example, I would add this issue:
% 4.  I want to send French pages to French speaking users, German, etc...

Accept-Language: seems to me the best way to accomplish it.
My personal idea is to modify slightly a server, so that the resource
/foo/bar.html actually can correspond to either /foo/DE/bar.html or
/foo/FR/bar.html ...

I understand that URC (or URN?) should be the right approach, but this could 
be implemented in a hurry, provided that browsers optionally send the 
correct header.

Any comments?
