But how can you be sure that next time you access that URL, it will
contain the same content-type??

Freshness calculations can not be based *ONLY* on content-type, since
nothing in the HTTP specification guarantees that the content-type can not
change over time...

I think that a combination on URL regex and content-type is probably a
better idea. (To tell the truth, I also asked this question...)
