Ouch! I really would like to resist this idea- I consider content
negotiation to be one of the greatest priorities of this group. The
currently popular content negotiation mechanism is user-agent: which is a
SERIOUS problem for the HTTP community to be able to have some sort of
common standards.

That said, I must admit that I personally don't have any brilliant solutions
for the problems posed by content negotiation. I just think its too
important to abandon so quickly.
