> Presently {{ContentMetadataBuilder.contentType}} defaults to "application/unknown". 
In many cases the application does not known the content type and might prefer to allow the
object store to detect a more precise type which this default interferes with.  From section
[7.2.1 of RFC 2616|http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec7.html#sec7.2.1]:
> {quote}
> Any HTTP/1.1 message containing an entity-body SHOULD include a Content-Type header field
defining the media type of that body. If and only if the media type is not given by a Content-Type
field, the recipient MAY attempt to guess the media type via inspection of its content and/or
the name extension(s) of the URI used to identify the resource. If the media type remains
unknown, the recipient SHOULD treat it as type "application/octet-stream".
