Well. The application list in the run dialog is constructed from all
desktop files, and in the new system those desktop files are supposed to
list the mimetypes they handle, so if the app is in the run dialog it
should already be in the open with menu. (Unless it didn't list some
mimetype it really supported, which should be fixed.)
