The real problem is that when mhtml: is used to fetch the container
over an underlying protocol, it does not honor Content-Type and
related headers (or even "nosniff").

Geez. It's 2011, and people are *still* doing that same basic error?

/me tries to remember the first "ignore the Content-Type header and handle it
based on guessing based on filename/extension" bug.  CA-2001-36 seems to
qualify, but I think there were ones before that.  Anybody able to remember
that far back?
