RFC 2616 says about 304 responses:
If the conditional GET used a strong cache validator (see section
13.3.3), the response SHOULD NOT include other entity-headers.
Otherwise (i.e., the conditional GET used a weak validator), the
response MUST NOT include other entity-headers; this prevents
inconsistencies between cached entity-bodies and updated headers.
Content-Type is entity header and not listed above this paragraph,
so clearly qualifies as "other entity-headers".
Could you please clarify why you think RFC is wrong here and you
need Content-Type in 304 response?
