Given http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Why_not_conneg I don't think this
will work out. Content negotiation works in environments where you
control both client and server and intermediaries don't get in the
way, otherwise it's just a mess.

And that's not even counting the fact that developers have massive
problems dealing with HTTP setups. Even something as simple as
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: * is too hard.
