Then I will have to implement it myself somehow, no big deal. I was
just confused because there is a "Content Type" option in the HTTP
sampler which lets you specify a string, but I understood that this is
to specify the character set, which I think is a bit misleading. The
JMeter documentation does provide enough information to figure out
what it is.

Often it is simply known in advance. For example if you develop an
iPhone app that communicates in XML over HTTP with its server.
