        Well, it seems that it is a bit late to speak, yet I think that text/plain should be the default when there is none.
        Furthermore, isn't there a default mime format builtin the browsers? I mean, when I get a ftp://something/somefile what is the default browser behavior? If there is one, I guess we should stick to it instead.
        Everyone can always push shift on the browser. However, there is no such an alternative for the text files.
