Specifically, all KDE-specific tags have been removed, as well as the Icon
field. Although all desktops need a way to determine the icon for a particular
type, the icon used will depend on desktop, and not only on the file type.
The type should be a standard MIME type where possible. If a special media type
is required for non-file objects (directories, pipes, etc), then the media
type 'inode' may be used.

for the sake of not having too many files. The Hidden field is usually not
present. It is used to indicate that this entry replaces all information for
this MIME type read so far, instead of being merged with other records for
the same type. The intent is to let users entirely replace existing types.
