That's not been exactly what the discussion was about when I was
copied in. I was asked if the following is sane:

It is sane, and possible to do. The rest seems to be concerned with
encouraging the validator team to include an accept header, which I
don't feel strongly about one way or the other.

I hope you all come up with something that everyone involved in this
debate is happy with.
