Description

http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-httpbis-content-disp-03#section-3.2

This section does not define how user agents ought to process header field values with multiple disposition types. According to this test case <http://greenbytes.de/tech/tc2231/#attandinline2>, user agents MUST use the first disposition type.

The argument is flawed. <http://greenbytes.de/tech/tc2231/#attandinline> demonstrates that IE picks the type by name, not by position.

There is no interoperability here today, and there's no evidence yet that it is needed. After all, the header is invalid.

Proposal: close as WONTFIX.
