This is nothing new, just the existing code from Python/libzeitgeist.

Don't see why we would overcomplicate it with an extension. Either we
do it, or we don't, but we don't "maybe" guess mime-type, that's just
confusing API users who want to rely on the feature.

Automatically determine interpretation from mime-type when it's empty
Status in Zeitgeist Framework:
Several of our client APIs (python-zeitgeist and libzeitgeist)
currently support guessing the subject interpretation from the mime-
I think it'd make sense to move this directly into the engine. So, if
a subject is inserted with an empty interpretation (which seems to be
allowed currently), we'll try to determine it from the mime-type.
This will avoid duplicating the mime-type mappings in different
bindings. It'll be even more useful for clients using the D-Bus API
directly (such as GTK+).
