I'm not sure I agree.  I am also annoyed at the language I get served
on, and find it more intuitive if I keep getting language X
pages once I clicked the "language X" link.

I think most 'serious' websites use language negotiation only as a
first guess, and store the language preference after that as a cookie
so it is remembered across pages and across sessions;  I'm not
advocating to do that (sounds like a lot of work), but we could have a
mechanism that minimizes language switches during a session.
