Not sure to understand what "lie" means.
Maybe you mean that it is a lie to use flavour names that are native names?
Can you please explain?

> Also, what does it mean to be "supported"? In new versions of Chrome, any kind of MIME type is supported in the sense that you can set data for any arbitrary type, and it can be understood by any browser that uses the same native conventions (I'd be happy to work with any other developers interested in making sure this works across different browsers on the same computer).

This sounds like a huge security leak.
What if trusted web-site docs.google.com receives a paste of easy.cms.com that just got hacked with a hack that a kind html containing a script that reads the cookie when executed?
