Sure octet-stream means something. It means that the output should be read as a stream of octets rather than a stream of binary and that you should be able to rely on recieving an even set of octets rather than an number of bits that doesn't resolve to an even octet. Of course, this is imposed by the IP protocol, so anything that comes down the pipe is technically an "octet-stream." It could be an indication that the content is not to be interpretted with split bytes (which IS done elsewhere) and that it is probably not plaintext.

    I don't think there is a way to send partial octets in HTTP.

    update: re-phrased to not sound so sarcastic.
