Hm, if .xhtml uploads as application/xhtml+xml with recent browsers, then the
situation is better than I thought.  I guess not a lot of people use the .xhtml
extension at the moment, FWIW.

Regarding the API change, I generally tend to think that prominently breaking
things is better than subtle, hidden, incompatible behaviour changes.  This
change would fall into a grayish area though, maybe having a documented default
would be acceptable, even if it could cause different results for the same
submission before and after the change.

Just thinking aloud, no strong opinions.
