There can be an RFC822 Content-Type header, yes.  That's not strictly
HTTP, but it's where HTTP and other MIME applications come from.

I validated the document you posted, and it came up valid without
any warning or error messages.  If it's complaining at you, then it
seems to be picking up a bug in your browser, which is probably not
a good thing: at the very least it risks confusing the issue!
