No, "harmful" is clearer.  Some days ago I wasted
hours trying to explain the fine points of MIME
types image/vnd.microsoft.icon vs. image/x-icon
in the Wikipedia favicon article and on my blog.

The worst about it is that I'm far from sure that
I got it right, because I can't test IE7 oddities
on my boxes (and wouldn't be eager to test IE7
even if I could).

If your not yet incorporated feedback covers MIME
x-types please include it.

Cheers,
 Frank
