RFC 5023 [1] introduces a media type parameter for Atom documents,  
namely type. There are two values for this parameter - "feed" and  
"entry". What is the expected behavior of an HTML user agent when it  
receives a response with the following entity header:

Content-Type: application/atom+xml;type=feed

The entity body would contain the feed element in the Atom namespace  
[2]. What would happen if the Content-Type included another parameter  
(besides charset, which is defined for all xml media types), e.g.,
