[Bug 8479] New: http content-type override mandatory for <object>


           Summary: http content-type override mandatory for <object>
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec bugs
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org

It appears that the current definition of <object> has several cases where
@type (or a type derived from the 'extension' of the URI) would override the
server-supplied media type.

Consistent with other parts of the spec, this behavior should be optional (== a
UA should be allowed to consider the HTTP content type as authoritative).
