Darshit Shah commented on a discussion: 

If the `content-type` header does not exist, we should assume it to be binary 
data and download it. Here is the relevant section from RFC 7231, section

So, we _may_ examine the file (maybe heuristic based on filename) or just 
assume it to be "application/octet-stream"
