When using the Swing Drag and Drop API the dropped data is corrupted for the 
following data types:
* mimetype=text/plain;representationclass=java.io.InputStream;charset=unicode
* mimetype=text/html;representationclass=java.io.InputStream;charset=unicode  

BasicTransferable should create InputStream for text with respect to 'charset' MIME parameter. Review: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~anashaty/8059739/9/webrev.00/
