RE: ACTION-308 (part 2) Updates to 'The Self-Describing Web'

# I remain a bit unsure on the nuances in choosing between empty content

What I remember (although this is now ancient history) the
intent was that an explicit application/octet-stream was a 
declaration of "hands off". In particular, "do not treat me 
as text or, for that matter, automatically sniff anything
without further user intervention.

It's pretty clear that actual experience varies.
