When I have mentioned on the Org mailing list that eww shall be able
to recognize content type, basically MIME type, and that Emacs shall
have possibility to define how to open different content types, people
started speaking of insecurity, how it is not good for Emacs users,

But I can easily use Iceweasel, fork of Firefox, and setup Emacs to
open text/x-org files.


It came out in discussion that Emacs shall not open Org files coming
from WWW servers, while in the same time every other browser can open
Org files by using Emacs. 

Makes no sense to me.

Opening MIME types is not related to security. I can have Perl files
to be opened directly with Perl interpreter, that is my user choice.

In my opinion there shall be mechanism in Emacs to open any MIME type.
