gnome-vfs v. shared-mime-info

I'm trying to find out how an application should register MIME-types for
it's documents, and how it can register itself as a handler for those

On the one-hand, there's the shared-mime-info database:
Adding a mime-type as decribed there causes Nautilus to recognise the
new MIME-type after a Nautilus restart.

But at runtime, gnome_vfs_mime_type_is_known() returns false for the new
MIME-type. Is gnome-vfs actually using the shared-mime-info database?
