Microsoft's position: IE9 RC strictly obeys the Content-Type returned to media
elements. We believe this behaviour matches the latest Firefox 4 Beta. Based on
feedback from developers and also following the "state of implementations"
thread highlighted by Simon above, we changed the implementation of media
elements between IE9 Beta and IE9 RC. While it required extra work in our
browser engine to respect the Content-Type in this way, it turned out that this
was less work than supporting a robust future-proof content-sniffing approach.
Consequently we disagree that this change simplifies things for implementers
and we request that the change be reverted. 

Currently, we do not support media playback for content with the
application/octet-stream content type. The working group should consider
application/octet-stream support as a separate issue.
