Ack! Why did they make a stupid paragraph like that? The default
charset of text/FOO should be specified by the text/FOO standard, and
not by HTTP. *grumble* Ok, then I guess charset=UTF-8 _is_ required,
due to W3C braindamage.

However, for XML data with a content-type that does not start with
"text/", the charset declaration is not needed.
