  I wouldn't call it that either (it'd be degrading for C ;)), but C++ does inherit from C (and was a layer on top of C in its early days, IIRC with a sort of preprocessor).
  In fact, Mr Stroustrup does say basically the same thing:
    Except for a few examples [...], C++ is a superset of C. 
  Yes, he also points out that C and C++ can also be siblings, depending on what version you're talking about, but that probably goes beyond the scope of mimetypes.
  > The inheritance in sthe shared-mime-info is actually done as a hacky workaround
  Only? Not also to avoid code duplication?
