I think there are a couple of misunderstandings:
- the things that are coded are the actions and the code they will be 
executing. Which actions appear and at which position can be configured _if_ 
the developer uses this part of the KDE functionality. If it is used, a file 
usually called applicationname.rc is in the .kde/share/apps/applicationname 

- Open With is almost certainly created by the KDE libs, never in application 

- or rather any work group there, has not created a 
specification for file type associations yet. There have been some 
introductional discussions on this topic though
