  A look at the archives for this list will uncover considerable
  discussion of various mechanisms for passing all sorts of
  information about user & client preferences and capabilities, and
  little consensus on how or even whether this should be done.

  Various of these efforts will apparently proceed as efforts separate
  from getting the HTTP/1.1 spec stable.  Without disagreeing with the
  idea that this would be usefull, I for one would really prefer that
  it not be considered as a part of the 1.1 spec.
