Hmm. Your idea calls for generalization. We have a MIME-type definition
in each desktop filem, but it definition knows nothing about the fact,
what can application do with listed MIME-type. Extended description
could look:

Have a (possibly unlimited) set of actions defined somewhere: Read
(default), Edit, Send_via_Bluetooth...

MimeTypeConvertCommand(*/*,class/anothertype)=myconvert %s -t %M %S
MimeTypeConvertCommand=myconvert -f %m %s -t %M %S

Nautilus could take an advance of such database while renaming files or
with menu item "Convert to" without much effort from application author.
