Given the lack of positive reception at this point I couldn't care
less about convincing anybody.  I still want to express my thoughts
cleanly, though.

I didn't mean hardcoded, it's not the right word indeed.  What I meant
is that given the cross-platform nature of MC, chances are mc.ext
won't contain the right associations out of the box right after
installation.  It has to be edited which could be avoided on Linux
desktops (and maybe on some other platforms, too) in most cases by
using the feature that I am suggesting.
