Speaking of that document, I notice section 4 forces the presence of a 
whitespace after the semi-colon preceeding the parameter, eg:

   text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1

This is wrong. Nothing in the MIME or the HTTP specs says such a
whitespace is mandatory. Whitespace is explicitely forbidden between
type and subtype, between parameter-name and parameter-value, but that's
all. AFAIC, |text/plain;charset=iso-8859-1| is perfectly valid and
|text/plain   ;     charset=iso-8859-1| is perfectly valid too.
