If this is true why does the preferred applications dialog only change

I guess that the preferred applications dialog shouldn't even touch the
url-handlers key then. But I would be very annoyed if it didn't when I
changed there (ie. I don't want to change both my preferred browser and
my http url handler).

My /deskop/applications/browser key is set to mozilla and I can't
remember any program ever using this key (since nothing has started
mozilla on my desktop. There is also no way (that I have found) to set
this key from the control center.
