For what it's worth, the above-necko layer in Gecko never sees "absence 
of a Content-Type".  If there isn't one, necko will sniff, period.  Of 
course that sniffing knows nothing about video at the moment, and will 
likely just detect it as application/octet-stream (modulo the 
extension-sniffing bits).
