Yes about the "cannot be translated", no about the "contains the mimetypes".
kde.xml contains only the extra mimetypes kde provides and freedesktop.org 
does not.

The most commonly used mimetypes will be translated, as they have translations 
in the freedesktop.org mimetype file.

What is missing here is the possibility to translate our mimetypes using the 
normal system used to translate applications and documentations.
(Though, injecting the translations directly in kde.xml should work.)
