No, this problem is different I guess:
When there is no mimetype handler (registered) at all for a given mimetype the
KTrader's answer still includes all those handlers that deal with base
mimetypes of the mimetype. But base mimetypes usually are not what is wanted
per default when viewing some file. E.g. when requesting a viewing handler
for a xhtml file you are seldomly keen to get a xml viewer or the plain text
viewer or the byte viewer.
And the answer is not to set all this viewers to AllowDefault=false ;) they
might be the primary viewer once and in a while, even a hex viewer (for
binary blobs one has no special viewer given, e.g. binary executables).
So IMHO the answer to this problem is to be able to query the trader to give
only those handlers that explictly show the given mimetype and not only some
