The system will now resolve a multiview properly based on LanguagePriority,
and un-extended names like .html.html will get the DefaultLanguage assigned.

You are right that this is a design flaw, both in documentation, and in the
old code (actually, many conflicting bugs, all of which should now be resolved
in Apache 2.0).

Without an accept-language fault, the server should choose by DefaultLanguage.

With an accept-language fault, the server will return no acceptable variant,
with some choices (that aspect needs lots o' work, I'd like to see something
that human beings can grok, such as languages spelled out in their native tounges,
perhaps using utf-8 to endure cross-charset output.)

The design flaw 'correction' would be to add a directive/option to enforce the
LanguagePriority instead of returning no acceptable variant.  That should not
be a difficult patch, if anyone thinks it is worthwhile.
