The intermediate got a weak ETag.  So the intermediate has been told that the
entity is equivalent but not byte-by-byte identical, and may be subject to
negotiated transformation.  Therefore the intermediate is responsible for
dealing with content-negotiated properties.

Do you have a particular intermediate in mind, when you propose something that
treats a weak ETag as strong?
