In p2, Accept, Accept-Charset and Accept-Encoding all have language similar to this:

> A request without any Accept header field implies that the user agent will accept any media type in response. If an Accept header field is present in a request and none of the available representations for the response have a media type that is listed as acceptable, the origin server may either honor the Accept header field by sending a 406 (Not Acceptable) response or disregard the Accept header field by treating the response as if it is not subject to content negotiation.

However, Accept-Language in 5.3.5 does not. Is this intentional?
