The current avro spec mentions that when HTTP is being used as a transport
for an Avro-defined protocol that the content type 'avro/binary' should be
used. There's an open issue about this not being a valid content
type, though there hasn't been movement in a while.
AFAICT, this means there isn't a general best practice at the moment. I
have some ideas on the matter, perhaps we could discuss this on the dev
list and then update the relevant jira?
