Wouldnt a simple "default_type application/octet-stream" be enough,
which is a default for most nginx packages ? I've been personally
running it for years on https://nightlies.videolan.org/ and never
received a single complaint from the testers.

Overall the consensus seems to be that the content type must be widely
used on the internet to justify its addition. It's hard to judge the
popularity for a delivery method predominatly used for closed-garden
software shops, but what is the software of question that expects such a
mime type?

Thank you,
