I would guess that Sushi should use evince libraries to implement
viewing for such documents.

Sushi doesn't handle "double-click" associations, it would only handle
the "preview" shortcut. It's not meant to replace the full applications.
There's 2 problems I'd like to see listed here, one is that Sushi should
use the mime-types exported by the "full" viewers (such that the video
or audio parts would use the same mime-types as Totem, same for evince),
the second is that the look and feel should also be shared with those
applications, to avoid clashing styles.
