If you already parsed mailcap into mc's configuration, you should've
seen this (picking out a random one):

application/vnd.sun.xml.draw; openoffice '%s'; edit=openoffice '%s'; test=test "$DISPLAY" != "" ; description="OpenOffice.org 1.0 Drawing"; nametemplate=%.sxd

Take extra care to the 'test' parameter.

If you can create a test to accomplish that, sure.
