I think we need to first canvas options
0) no ability to have options or discover profile conformance of default option for resource
1) no ability to dereference a URI to a specific profile except via software support (header manipulation)
2) Descriptions of all content negotiation options embedded in every resource
3) Servers responsible for delivering list of options and clients able to  invoke this special metod
4)Third party cataloguing of metadata about options, and a canonical means for clients to discovery and access this third party
5) provision of a specific resource describing options (directly by link from the resource, by querying the server)  from the server or a designated link to a third party resource) - aka the alternates view
6) ?.

These are not mutually exclusive, but AFAICT  other than 5 put a very high burden on clients outside of very specific machine-mediated smart client scenarios.
