  A follow-up question then: does Qt use its bundled MIME type database on macOS? If yes, then macOS probably doesn't use such MIME type names.
  >> If I understand correctly, this MIME type is currently useless in KDevelop anyway, because it is only included in MIME type lists and never appears in conditions. Is //text/x-objchdr// used in macOS? If yes, how is it distinguished from //text/x-chdr// there?

I rarely use the Finder for filesystem navigation but I'll try to remember to look how it labels, erm, *C* header files.

  Yes, it is interesting if Finder ever labels //*.h// files as Objective-C headers - when they start with `#import`, `@interface` or `@class`?
  The **Compiled Programming Language Sources** section of Apple's System Declared UTI documentation <https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uniformtypeidentifiers/system_declared_uniform_type_identifiers> contains //cHeader//, //cSource//, //cPlusPlusHeader//, //cPlusPlusSource//, //objectiveCPlusPlusSource// and //objectiveCSource//, but no //objectiveC[PlusPlus]Header//.
