In a nutshell, yes! Dynamic content negotiation has always been there 
for those that seek to exploit it. Sadly, the tendency is to tag even 
basic content negotiation as too complex which ultimately leads to poor 
wheel reinventions that don't scale at all.

The Web's architecture is fundamentally dexterous. It has many goodies 
awaiting those that are ready to dig a little deeper :-)
