If it made an explicit claim about XHTML support, then surely you  
would still have the same problem for testing the HTML fallback?  
Wouldn't it be easier to provide some method in the URL that would  
handle it?

I'd expect Apache Multiviews would make it fairly easy to set it up  
so that requesting /foo would do Content-Negotiation while /foo.html  
or /foo.xhtml would request a specific version.
