URI-based conneg is specified as setting an "effective" value for the
Accept and Accept-Language headers, the spec requires that the methods
of HttpHeaders return the original values rather than the effective
ones. The idea being to preserve the original request information.

After more thought we think it would be more consistent if the
"effective" values were used everywhere since those are the values
used in matching and variant selection and it seems to odd to provide
the original values for those headers since they are essentially
