Good catch.
Want to provide a patch? Should be very very simple to do it.

> According to the HTTP / 1.1 spec, the "identity" content-coding is to be used only in
the Accept- Encoding header, and should not be used in the Content-Encoding header. Currently,
any uncompressed attachment which is retrieved from CouchDB will have Content-Encoding:identity
specified in its response header.
> http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec3.html#sec3.5
> All browsers and most proxies seem to ignore the header and function correctly. However,
Microsoft's ISA 2006 proxy seems to reject the entire request, meaning all attachments are
inaccessible from behind the proxy.
