Informational: Opera's pre-P&C-implementation allows widgets in any format that Opera can handle natively, using the widgetfile element [1][2].  Given that the P&C-specification does not explicitly disallow or mandate a content type for the start file, I would expect this behavior to be conformant in an implementation of P&C

[2] Should be testable both in Opera 9.6x and the upcoming Opera 10.00
