        How would that help if EWW will still launch doc-view-mode for
        any PDF files going through it?

        As in: M-x eww RET hello, world! RET, find some link among the
        search results, RET over it.  Now, should retrieving that link
        result in a Content-Type: application/pdf document, –
        doc-view-mode is sure to be invoked.
