should be application/json imo. We are a document oriented db speaking
in json first. If someone accept text/html where the only thing we
send on resource is json, we should send an error by default (maybe a
setting could override that).

We could also have specific rules for transformations handlers like
lists, shows & update and sedning error when someone ask text/html on
a zip attachment.
