RFC 2046 is about “Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions”, whilst the
original poster had asked about “Bad Content-type headers on Unicode
web site”. The latter is RFC 2616’s realm.
Hence, the default character set for MIME text/… types is
• US-ASCII, in e-mail,
• ISO 8859-1, in WWW pages when received via HTTP.

True, all the more.
