I don't know, for Batik (which only accepts SVG and image types) a server
should really be returning the body of a 404 in a type displayable by it, so
batik could display it.  I think it should be rendered, it's still a valid
document, and if an author doesn't want it, then they can simply return an
empty body (although this violates SHOULD's of http1.1).
