After a newsgroup discussion, warren posted:

So I want to make sure we track this as we move towards beta.

I marked this M10 per the comments above and to get off the 'Necko, no
milestone' radar. Feel free to change.

Gagan, should this be an accessor on nsIChannel? Or should it be an event sink?

Rick said that he was going to add it nsIHTTPChannel. It doesn't make sense to
do it to nsIChannel. But for the moment if you need to parse out the charset,
you can see anything after the semicolon on a
nsIHTTPChannel::GetResponseHeader("Content-Type", &foo); which is the raw HTTP
header as compared to the nsI[HTTP]Channel::GetContentType() call. Cc'ing

Spoke with warren at bug triage today.  Not an M10 blocker...moving to M11.

Looks like this has already been done. nsIHTTPChannel::GetCharset

I trust warren, marking verified for tracking purposes.
