I agree with your point about fixing servers to a certain extent.
However, we have a lot of teachers as customers, and they tend often
to not be very technically empowered.  They don't know about things
like MIME types, and if they did, they don't have time to fool with
it.  They like things to work out of the box.

I would be interested in hearing other reactions to this as an interim
work around.
