The reliance on Content-type

Has anybody definitive experience with varying Accept headers for the  
same resource, and web caches out there? (I don't)

In other words, are we absolutely sure that if the following passes  
through a cache:

GET /something
Accept: text/html,  (whatever normal browsers do)

GET /something
Accept: application/xrid+xml, text/html;q=0.5

99% of all deployed caches will indeed return the XML instead of the  
HTML in the second case?
