Safari's (closed source) network back-end parses Content-Type for charset in a
manner that's different from both RFC2616 and the current HTML5 spec. We also
have a separate parser in WebKit that's used in a limited set of circumstances
(only for XMLHttpRequest.overrideMimeType and for correcting a MIME type set
via XMLHttpRequest.serRequestHeader).

But I am no aware of any evidence against following RFC2616 to the letter when
getting charset out of Content-Type.

>  Content-Type: text/plain; charsetfoo=bar; charset=UTF-8

Also, this algorithm fails to ignore charset in "Content-Type: text/plain;
