It's detrimental to the user when the user is denied content or a stylesheet
for the content because a server is misconfigured.  There are cases, such as
CSS documents and images referenced by CSS documents, where ignoring
Content-type is never harmful.  in other cases, the harm can be mitigated by
the rules in the spec.
