This isn't terribly useful in general IMO. It would be useful if you were
reading /myfile.html in your preferred language of, say
French, and the English was the original and/or definitive version. In this
case you might follow a link to myfile_en.html that would be returned in
English as that is what you want in that particular case for a particular
purpose, despite your generally favouring French.

In most cases the language I want is a matter of what I can cope with, not a
matter of what I am interested in.
