the only thing which comes to my mind while reading this.is - didn't the desktop solve this 20 years ago?
Yeah, but... which desktop?
AFAIK, each desktop OS implementation from a different vendor (Windows, OSX, and in the past BeOS or OS/2) has its own API for defining these "MIME associations". The Linux desktop has its own Freedesktop standard which luckily is followed by all desktop implementations here.
