OK, so leave alternatives.

No, it doesn't. There can be more tjan one line describing the same mime
type. And what then? Solving this problem will be sorting content of
/usr/lib/mime/packages by appropiate types, such as:

 content (example): x,/usr/bin/mozilla
 content: text,/usr/bin/mozilla

And on that base update-mime can generate /etc/mailcap. Of course if
they'd be more browsers it only can choose one, but in the present time
it's the same.

If there'd be a types tree like that making front-end will make sense,
otherwise no. User'd choose a program from that directory structure.
