Subject: CVE request: Python Bottle JSON content-type not restrictive enough

Hi, and report an issue where 
Bottle treated "text/plain;application/json" as JSON, allowing security 
mechanisms to be bypassed.

 From the upstream report, "For example Chrome will not allow 
cross-origin xmlhttprequests with the content type set to 
"application/json" but you can set it to "text/plain;application/json" 
instead and bottle will accept it."

Can a CVE please be assigned if one has not been already?
