I thought about it some more, and in addition to the performance 
problem, it would lead to adding charset even for binaries. We already 
found out that this way very bad (in addition to being meaningless, it 
breaks some clients such as Acrobat which simply does a check on the 
MIME type without removing the charset, which is rather logical since 
they're dealing with binaries) - this was some unintended behavior in 
some 4.1.x release (if I remember well, it was introduced by you 
already: you do like charset related issues ;) ).
So what I suggest is that you send that you send that as feedback to the 
servlet API, and that they put a small errata for the specification.
-1 for implementing the requirements of the specificatrion (although I 
can't find them anywhere ;) ) to the letter right now, as they are 
broken (I didn't dislike the previous behavior, so I want it to remain).
