I've done a quick test as I happen to have a demo where a 
multipart/form-data is expected.

In my case I can see the following on the wire:

Content-Type: multipart/form-data; 

what happens next is the runtime will sort the accepts and start from 
the first one (text/html) and check if candidates for it are available.
If yes (and assuming all other checks pass) then the check won't 
continue because the first matching accept type in the sorted list will 
be the right one for the client (text/html in this case).

I can think that the only reason you see a method producing 
"application/json" preferred to the one producing "text/html" is that
the Accept originating from a browser have both "text/html" "& 
application/json" as equal priority media types.

Can you log Accept produced by the browser please ?

Cheers, Sergey
