The answer to the question of whether this is a bug or a feature is to find out what other web browsers do with files of this MIME type and also to check whether there are any standards that have anything to say about correct behavior.

The code is just a means to an end. Tthe first step is to find out what behavior we want. Then we can discuss how to change the software.
