in my understanding, an application can only handle specific tasks (think of
where the data for this task comes from, does not matter for the task. at
least it should not. no single app can handle the whole http: schema,
neither can one handle all of ftp: or webdav:, it can only handle files,
that they access through above means. 
i understand that a (theoretical) fish: (as in midnight commander, and kde)
ioslave may have only one kind of application, that is suitable, but

so, mimetypes are not totally unrelated to this matter...
