and http://h3h.net/2007/01/designing-urls-for-multilingual-web-sites/#method-08 I want to
use commas and semicolons for content negotiation with mod_negotiatate.

No, MultiViews only does extension-based negotiation. With type-maps
you can use whatever names you want. See:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/content-negotiation.html#negotiation

You can do this with type-maps or with mod_rewrite (although with the
latter, you may need to do y9our own interpretation of the Accept-
headers).

By the way, I think your bug report is off base. The actual name of
the file on the file-system is irrelevant for the client.
