That's why I asked about the intended semantics of our MIME type strings:
should anything that's called a MIME or content type be strict according
to the spec, it being the responsibility of whatever creates those strings
to make them so, or should we have to be forgiving in all the places that
consume MIME types?

I'm not sure whether you mean we should ignore whitespace in a MIME type
string or not have to pay attention to the issue when consuming one.
