Global default applications are ignored by mimeopen #20
Standard http://standards.freedesktop.org/mime-apps-spec/mime-apps-spec-1.0.html defines that default application associations should be first searched in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME, then $XDG_DATA_HOME (among other directories). This makes it possible to ship some distribution-wide defaults, while allowing user to choose some personal preferences.
