As I said in my comment of 2003-02-05 18:39, it's easy to come up with a
situation where the server administrator is fully up-to-date on their duties,
but apache still does the wrong thing. The users may be experimenting with new
mime-types and UAs or plug-ins, and not alert the sysadmin. In that case, a null
content-type is the only RFC-compliant choice to allow the custom UA to sniff
and do the right thing.
