I meant if we use Gecko's responseXML to check whether it's NULL or not. 
For "default" case (no override), Gecko returns a non-NULL xml doc, even 
if Content-Type is not valid the way IE treats it. So we can't use it to 
check this (I tried it first since it's simpler).

It does do the right thing with overrideMimeType, but if we use it, 
we'll override *any* content type, which is not good either. Well at 
least not good enough to match native IE.
