Perhaps we should treat mime-types that contain 'charset=UTF-8'
as text by default? libmagic is able to detect the charset AFAIK.
Our code currently removes charset information from the mime-type
returned by libmagic.

I don't really like the idea of adding yet another special case
to our definition of what a "text" mime-type is. But it might
be worth doing this if it impacts a lot of people.
