I would leave the organization of Windows default applications to the
Windows-using developers.

A more general question to all developers:

When checking for default viewer/editor applications during (re)configure,
should LyX
a) prefer feature rich applications, or
b) prefer small and fast-starting applications.

Current praxis seems to be:
  1. KDE/QT applications
  2. GNOME/GTK applications
  3. Windows
and in these categories a) feature rich apps first.

I prefer "small first", but not so much that I would change
anything without a broad consensus.
