Yes, I think this is important for the TAG to look at.  It's less clear to 
me that discussing it at this particular F2F is a better use of time than 
some other good things we'll want to do.  I am in any case leaving several 
time slots intentionally open, and I'm also including a list of subjects 
that we may want to discuss, but for which no particular time is 
allocated.  For now, I've included contentTypeOverride-24 in that last 
with a pointer to your email (below) and 
http://ietfreport.isoc.org/idref/draft-abarth-mime-sniff/.  So, we have it 
on the reading list, and there will be the option to discuss if we decide 
it's the right use of time.  OK?

Noah

Some news re ISSUE-24 contentTypeOverride-24...

Noah, I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier... I should
read this thing soon anyway, so if you put it on the TAG ftf
reading list, you'd be doing me a favor...

                     Content-Type Processing Model
                       draft-abarth-mime-sniff-00


Abstract

   Many Web servers supply incorrect Content-Type headers with their
   HTTP responses.  In order to be compatible with these Web servers,
   Web browsers must consider the content of HTTP responses as well as
   the Content-Type header when determining the effective mime type of
   the response.  This document describes an algorithm for determining
   the effective mime type of HTTP responses that balances security and
   compatibility considerations.
