What about the additional context that a tag such as <img> or <script>
Although modern desktop Web browsers handle many formats as compared to some
mobile devices (and that is rapidly changing), the context of URI within a
document may give enough hints that a browser would select a sub-set of all
media types for use in the Accept header. Or am I misunderstanding the issue
