Why would you want to do that?
The File Association system on Windows is completely different and has
nothing to do with MIME types (I think, I don't really care). Therefore,
it doesn't have a MIME database as XDG expects it to. Even if you ship
the default DB from XDG with your application, newly installed programs
will not update it.
