In particular, I'd like to hand off what little information I've gathered about how to go about testing MIME sniffing in browsers, since 

(a) if sniffing ever becomes part of the standard you will need to test it, and
(b) some testing NOW of what browsers actually do would help a lot in convincing people why a standard is necessary
