The custom file formats used by Qt tools should be registered as MIME types, so files of their types can have proper display with own icons & type name in file managers, file selection dialogs, file listings in web UIs (like of code repositories), IDEs, etc.
Ideally those would be registered at IANA:
Many (on *Linux) would be already happy if all of them were registered with shared-mime-info from freedesktop.org:
"text/x-qml", "application/x-designer" are already there.
Missing are at least:
- qrc file
- qmldir file
- pro/pri file
- qch file
- qdoc index file
I would be willing to create and propose the patch for shared-mime-info. For that though I would like to know the mimetype string ids and titles the Qt maintainers would like to see for the different types.
