Opera ignores Content-Type for <audio>/<video> and performs sniffing as per <http://mimesniff.spec.whatwg.org/>. We also ignore Content-Type for <track> and sniff for WebVTT using the parser spec. Some background in <http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/NoVideoContentType>.

In short, interoperable sniffing is already specified and implemented in Opera, and I think that using a MIME type instead is strictly worse.
