How about something that's totally independant from HEADER issues?

think normal people here. absolutely 0 interest to mess with headers
and http responses.. absolutely no business incentive to do it.

as a baseline think someone wanting to annotate with RDFa a hand
crafted, apached served html file.
really.. as simple as serving this people.

as simple as anyone who's using opengraph just copy pastes into their
HTML template.. as simple as this
really, please, its the only thing that can work?
