One very simple but useful form of content negotiation is the ability to
supply files according to the preferred mime types. For instance:
http://www.example.com/images/logo -> server provides logo.gif or logo.png
depending on what the browser provides in the Accepts header.
I'm not sure that using content negotiation for images is good thing:
all modern browsers understand basic mime types, and these images must
be uncachable on transit proxies.
Then there's conneg for all kinds of other things like languages, but this
might be a good first step for nginx.
The question is how many people set (or have by default) right language
in browsers ?
