After a mailing list discussion there was consensus that the DEFAULT_CONTENT_TYPE setting is no longer useful since HTML5 has overtaken XHTML and that it could be deprecated.

For reference, the setting has lead to a number of bug reports such as the one that kicked off the discussion, #23908, and others such as #24598, #20822, #11683, #5704, etc.
