Wish: denote unknown file types in some special header

           Summary: Wish: denote unknown file types in some special header
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0-HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: the_Arioch@nm.ru


By default, Apache marks any unknown file as text/plain.
One could change defaults - but very few do.
So unknown file types, as RAR and 7-zip archives, are mistreated as texts and 
are killed during download.

I wish that Apache will add some header or in some other way mark the files, 
where real file type was not known and fallback to default type occured.
Then browser could easily detect this. As well as any proxy software like 
Proxomitron could substitute MIME-Type then.

This also may be wished for Apache 1.3
