Currently only using ugly tricks:

- Editing desktop file - pain for packaging, reusable plugin packages
  don't know, what to edit.

- Adding another hidden desktop file clone with new MIME type - reusable
  plugin packages don't know, what to clone.

Idea to implement virtual MIME types

It is not yet yet written, but I guess it can be done by changing the
sped and modification of update-mime-database to process it and create
MIME cache without virtual MIME types.
