Changing the corresponding links would mean that every page has to be
translated - something that is rather unlikely. Also, changing the links
doesn't work for people that do prefer a special ordering in the
languages they want to read (like, swedish, norwegian, english - and
take first available) and thus would cut off people that actually did
configure their browser accordingly.
I can understand that configuring the browser isn't always the best
option, like when being abroad and using computers in internet cafes or
at friends' places, though there is no good option to support everyone,
at least I haven't heard about them yet.
