All good stuff, but as I mentioned before: are you going to fork your
DOM Scripts for the two styles of rendering (text/html vs
application/xhtml+xml) ?

I'd wager that this is a big show stopper. Client-side scripting isn't
evil if done properly, and more and more people are using it to add
value to their web sites and applications.

If you can *guarantee* that you won't be using DOM Scripting in your
site, then sure: go ahead, use content negotiation.
