remove default MIME-type

André, the basic problem I am trying to solve is that with a properly configured
web server a user adding a file of a type the server does not know will
automatically get the file sent as text/plain.

The SHOULD is not a MUST, imo, because the server shouldn't send the type if the
type is unknown... 

Point taken about modules; I was somewhat afraid of that.  Note that my patch
fixes everything that just such a grep found in the default source tarball, but
I'm sure many other modules exist that depend on it.  :(

I think we all agree that most web server admins out there should be flogged. 
The question is how to make life as good as possible for the users without
violating standards while we flog them one at a time (and the Mozilla project
_does_ spend a lot of time evangelizing developers on MIME type issues)...

I'll ask on the dev list as you suggest.  Thank you.
