Ok I see your point, but if I set DefaultType to a specific mime type it is
only used if a requested resource has no known mime type. IMHO this is more
or less the same like setting (adding) the default charset which is used
if a resource has an unknown charset.

My main point was that all other Add* directives can be used multiple
times within a single context. But the idea behind AddDefaultCharset
is to using it just once within a specific context.
