If I'm reading the current spec correctly, I think conneg should be covered:
- 3.3.2 -> If resource is cachable by a shared cache, as defined in
[RFC7234], return true. (i.e. valid for integrity validation) [1]
- 3.4, -> Set request’s Accept header value to the value of
request’s integrity metadata’s content type. [2]

To me, this implies that content negotiation is (implicity) supported..
also, we're extending Fetch, which I would expect to cover content
negotiation? If not, that's a bug in Fetch.
