The specification for the default application for any (mime)type is currently 
being worked on by the freedesktop people. (There is a link somewhere, I 
couldn't look it up quickly). Before it is standardized and implemented, 
there is little hope of finding out, in a cross DE way, the default 
application for any type.

Adding preferences to beagle would require another mimetype-application 
association to be maintained by beagle (the first being with the DE). Thats a 
scary thought.
