Per my comment on #8096 (which is related), this allows resources to have
multiple representations. That is, it avoids having to append prefixes to
differentiate between representations (e.g. .txt, .pdf, .doc) by using the
standard HTTP content negotiation mechanism (Accept: headers) and MIME types
rather than by constructing a separate URL for each.
