it seems a reasonable thought, but there are at least two cases,  
where it has not been the case.

	* CSS: text/plain versus text/css
	* HTML: closing the TABLE element

We have to be careful on what we think will happen as much as we have  
to be careful on the reason of success of this and that. History is  
not an experiment and can't be tested and proved.
