No, it's not MIME type handling. It's regarding URI schemas. An app provides
support for the http: schema, another the ftp: schema, another the gopher:
schema. MIME handling is separate.

Services were used in all kinds of ways. One way was to load unsupported
image types, by having a service that could load various image types and
output them to the pasteboard as TIFF, which would then be extracted by the
AppKit and displayed. These particular services were called image filters.
