Well, text types usually have a 'charset' parameter, and applications
are known to treat, say, a HTTP response with

  Content-Type: text/parameters;charset=iso-8859-1

As ISO-8859-1 encoded document, even though I gather they are to use
UTF-8 to decode the document. If you don't want a 'charset' parameter,
this problem should be noted in the Security or Interoperability con-
siderations.

This field needs a value (probably "8bit" or "binary").
