The finding does take the Web into account.  It is well known that  
developers are too lazy to fix their HTTP bugs, that none of the content
type issues would exist if the browser developers simply fixed their  
and that eventually a security exploit will put them out of business  
Market forces.

The only thing the TAG can do is document how the architecture
is supposed to work, and thus who to blame when bugs get exploited.
