Yes, the current editor's draft provides language sufficient to handle the real
world data Philip found:

> If the resource is expected to be an image, user agents may apply the image sniffing rules, with the official type being the type determined from the resource's Content-Type metadata, and use the resulting sniffed type of the resource as if it was the actual type. Otherwise, if the resource is not expected to be an image, or if the user agent opts not to apply those rules, then the user agent must use the resource's Content-Type metadata to determine the type of the resource. If there is no type metadata, but the external resource link type has a default type defined, then the user agent must assume that the resource is of that type.

The image sniffing rules reference are here:
