The problem is, there is just not enough information available to the
ErrorDocument.  In specific, the default error page lists the available
variants, but a custom ErrorDocument cannot do this.

Regarding the statistic, there are 3382 "no acceptable variant" errors in
/www/error_log for the twelve hours ending at 12pm PST today.  These came
from 1175 unique IP addresses and a quick skim of the lines tells me that
they are all from the httpd docs.
