I believe you misunderstand the organization of the specification. What
RFC 2616 says is that the media type of the entity body of a message is
defined by the Content-Type header; if there is no Content-Type header,
then the media type is defined by the implementation; if the implemen-
tation fails to define a media type, assume application/octet-stream.

If you want to say that the media type of the entity body is defined by
the implementation and not the Content-Type header, then you have to
change the definition of the Content-Type header. The phrase you pro-
pose to remove is there to avoid conflicting definitions of what the
media type of the entity body is.
