[Bug 11482] WF2: Change accept="" to accept file extensions as well as MIME types (maybe based on whether they start with a period)

(In reply to comment #12)
text/csv isn't a registered mime type on either of my two machines.  Putting
accept="text/csv" results in a *.* filter in both IE and Chrome. It's only a
single data point but I think it still shows that using mime type in the accept
parameter is inexact. Browsers can attempt to lookup the file extension the
developer wanted, but it won't work in all cases.  

If the developer could specify exactly what file extensions they wanted, we
could eliminate the inexactness of the mime lookup.
