Alfresco changtes the mime type if no extension defined

I upload a Word document test.docx into Share. Then I change the name to test (without extension).

Note: for some reason some users do this when uploading, I do not know exactly how.

When I then do an online edit of the document and save it, a new version is created but the mime type changed to Binary File (Octet Stream), and of course preview and editing no longer work.

Why does Alfresco change the mime type?
