I didn't say that.

The point being that you can't satisfy a requirement for users to opt-in 
  into ignoring mime types by having the shipping config to default to 


     "An agent MUST NOT ignore or override authoritative metadata 
without the consent of the party employing the agent."

is a good thing, but please don't claim by having this default to true 
constitutes consent.

Best regards, Julian
