Actually, MINESNIFF has as Step 2 in Section 3:

   2.  If the user agent is configured to strictly obey Content-Type
       headers for this resource, then jump to the last step in this set
       of steps.

So yes, using the algorithm is mandatory, but the algorithm explicitly allows
not to sniff.
