I don’t think it’s a good idea to use triggers for
update-desktop-database. There are many .desktop files without a
MimeType key, and for all of them calling update-desktop-database is a
waste of time. 

On my system, only 30% of .desktop files have a MimeType field. If
anyone can make per-package statistics on the whole archive, that would
probably give a better picture.
