That raises an interesting point... do you know a file browser (like 
konqueror, n**forgot** from Ximian) that associates applications not just by 
looking at the extension, because that would fail in the .xml case, but at the
!DOCTYPE line as well in case of XML files?

I do not know one... Could we all post requests the the OS file browsers for
this kind of support?
