Since due to sniffing text/html can turn out to be a feed (and actually
application/xml as well) there needs to be some way for this to plug back into
registerContentHandler() because otherwise e.g. bloglines.com cannot become a
proper feed reader. Of course, browsers can give users some UI on how to let a
Web page be a feed reader, but that seems more cumbersome and goes against the
idea of having registerContentHandler() in the first place.
