That only applies to widgets that acquired over HTTP. Widgets can come 
from any source, include those that know nothing of media types. 
Nonetheless, media types are respected when a widget is acquired over 
HTTP (see Step 1 in P&C spec [1] to see if we have spec'd it correctly).

Kind regards,
Marcos
