confusing logic on data preview formats

  1. If a user enters the wrong format on a file that can be previewed - it simply won't be previewed (e.g. a CSV or XML file that can be filled in with JSON in format will just not work or check this
  1. If I incorrectly edit format to one that data preview will try to preview it will work even for a format that it doesn't accept (sometimes) e.g. this PDF file I changed the metadata to HTML http://s031.okserver.org:2375/en/dataset/test-dataset/resource/9d27a9d9-36ec-460e-9edb-6dff7ba4fc28

Point 2 relies on the Chrome previews of PDFs, but can we not use this ability?

I think this is probably linked to the qa plugin and auto detecting formats rather than believing the user.
