If it's wrong, it's not just the examples. I quoth from section 19.2:

"The multipart/byteranges media type includes two or more parts,
each with its own Content-Type and Content-Range fields."

It makes sense to me... otherwise how would you know the content type
of the document you're retreiving the range for? (remember, the main
entity has a content type of multipart/byteranges). I'm curious to
know why you think this is wrong.
