My best guess is that that server accepts input labelled with the
Content-type "x-www-form-urlencoded", or it may even require that
label, but it doesn't actually treat the data in accordance to the
rules for "x-www-form-urlencoded".  As long as input is always
submitted by special utilities or scripts, and never with an
interactive Web browser as a HTML form submission, that would work.

I'm not going to test that hypothesis, that server has probably more
important things to do than respond to a bunch of erroneous test

If that works, then use it. :)
