I don't understand what you propose? There is no in-use non-gconf
setting for mapping default handlers for entire uri scheme. So, we
lookup none which mean we then fall back to the per-mime default.

Its entierly unreasonable to have a file:// uri handler, as that would
open *all* types of local files, overriding your per-mime specs.
