[Bug 7697] The type attribute should ammend the Accept header accordingly. HTTP spec is in accordance with the rules here, in terms of the Accept header being non-authorative. script and style elements already ammend accept header (in firefox) but not for other link

There are already a couple of examples of HTML requiring that the client alter
certain headers when sending subsequent requests:


1. HTML5's rel=noreferrer says that "the user agent must not include a Referer
(sic) HTTP header (or equivalent for other protocols) in the request."

http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/links.html#link-type-noreferrer

Note that it even says "must", whereas the proposal in this ticket could
presumably be phrased as a suggestion, not a requirement.


2. <form enctype="...">
