It seems you got more problems than me with mime sniffing, I don't remember 
seeing any misdetected files with Nautilus (but I'm not using it heavily, so 
that may be why). I think a usable "open with" menu item is a more satisfying 
answer to mime type misdetection than choosing between two mime type 
detection methods which both can fail.
