This will lead to people lying about Content-Types, which is one of the 
big problems with XDR. I don't think this is a good thing. (In particular, 
it prevents us from sending XML over XHR, which is dumb given the name of 
the object if nothing else! Sending JSON and XML are the two biggest use 
cases of this API.)
