If the web server were to render page according to the list order, it
would mean that it doesn't consider them "equally acceptable".
The way I understand the specs is that if a user states that two
languages are "equally acceptable", then it means that it's up to the
server to negotiate, based on it's own criteria.
The RFC2616 "12.1 Server-driven Negotiation" says :

And that's very useful for server side negotiation, because on the
server side, it's likely that the language were written in one given
language, then translated. It would then be sensible to provide the
Thanks for the suggestion anyway (and Keep reporting bugs).
