We don't define mime type mappings in .dekstop files. We have an
application registry where we define the full list of mime types each
application handles. We also store, per mime-type, a short list of
applications and components that handles that type, per user level. I
guess I should (a) get on gnome-kde-list and (b) write up some
documentation of mime formats. 

We have a single big file that gets installed by default for
applications, and a big one for mime types, but applications can
easily install their own. We may want to convert some or all of this
to XML for GNOME 2.0
