I don't entirely agree; by doing so you're semantically saying any message
matching those rules should be text/plain, which I don't believe is true.
Let's say someone setting up a Russian web site sets DefaultType to be
"text/plain;charset=KOI8".  Then any message matching those patterns would
be changed to simply "text/plain".  Hmm...
