content negotiation in HTTP

With respect to the discussion of content negotiation:

I have a year-old action item to update the section of the
HTTP document on content negotiation:

I'm hoping to get to this without delving deeply into the
semantic web while discussing the protocol implementations
of "accept:" headers. 

I think content-negotiation *did* work out in practice
in some limited circumstances, but that it didn't work
out for the application that originally motivated its
introduction to HTTP in 1992 or so.

I hope to get to this work soon, although probably 
not until after my first TAG F2F meeting.
