mime-type code duplication?

Isn't there a lot of mime-type code duplication between libgnome and the
mime-type capplet? (that's in gnome-mime*.c and mime-data.c, respectively)

If gnome-libs allowed editing the mime keys (like the capplet), and maybe
exposed its mime hashtables, this would also (besides eliminating
duplication) allow an application to programmatically register itself as
handling a mime-type, without requiring an application-specific .keys file.

Any reason not to do this?
