If an application does not register itself as being able to open the file
type, then you won't see it. I can't imagine why a user would need to keep
an application off the context menu. But he could still do it by changing
the associations as Jonathan's document suggests.

Again, see "Change Default Application for a MIME-type" in Jonathan's

I guess that would mean setting the default application for a group of MIME
types all at once, where the application says that it can open that MIME
type. I guess that might be useful. It would not need to be in the same UI.
