It only makes sense for MIME types that start with "text/" (such as 
"text/plain" and "text/html").

And, about the URIEncoding attribute for the Connector, understand the 
following : it means that Tomcat is going to (try to) decode ALL URLs of 
ALL requests that arrive on that port, for ALL Hosts and webapps, as if 
these URIs are ALL UTF-8 encoded.
That may, or may not, fit your situation.
