Unfortunately, no and (after reading the code briefly) I found no way to 
obtain the required information through existing interface.  You might 
try extending decidePolicyForMIMEType() callback passing the response 

Another option might be to try intercepting the response in 
didReceiveResponse for WebResourceLoadDelegate and later associate it 
somehow with the decide policy request.

Good luck! :)
