Ah, I didn't know that.

Anyway, I thought you wanted to display the icon for data files of that

Yes, Patterns seems to be for .desktop FIles for MImeType only.

I think it is the most uptodate version of it.
If you found entries not mentioned in the standard, they could be 
proprietary extensions or the author of the docs got lazy :)

kde-devel (or o this lis and I'll forward it to kde-devel) to make the 
core pepople aware of this.
