Ok, for Blob by default no Content-Type is included by the user agent  
unless Blob is a File and mediaType is non-empty and the author has not  
set a Content-Type header. If that is all true Content-Type is set to the  
value of mediaType.

This has been changed in the editor's draft of XMLHttpRequest Level 2.
