I think you're probably right; what I think is fair to assume, though,
is that when the type attribute is set to something that the browser
knows it doesn't know, it won't try to download it and directly skip to
the fallback content.

So maybe this could be the basis under which we decide to add or not the
content of the object to the total downloaded size?

(that said, I think it's also something that can wait mobileok 1.1; it's
not such a widespread problem out there AFAICT).
