On windows it looks in the registry. Good luck with that on Android :-)

For other OSes there are about 4 or 5 mime types defined. Not really useful.

So my suggestion is probably still the best. I don't see why you'd need to
force this on all users, only the ones that need mime types need the file ?

Or you could convert it to an include file that just registers all more or
less known types in fpmimetypes.pp. Then people can include this include
file and be done with it.
