HTTP 1.1 defines enough about variants that I think we need to consider
them.  Section 12 on content negotiation, together with the Accept,
Accept-Charset, Accept-Encoding, and Accept-Language make it clear that a
single resource may be available in different variants that could certainly
be relevant to search.  Do I want you to search all variants or just the
English language variants or just the French language variants for the word
