Fallback when Preferred App is missing

This is in vmware, hrev22624.
I have several files, saved in BeOS R5 that have the attribute BEOS:PREF_APP set to application/x-vnd.Be-STEE. That's StyledEdit's signature in BeOS. Haiku's is changed to application/x-vnd.Haiku-StyledEdit. Consequently the system doesn't find the preferred application and offers to find an app to open the file.
Wouldn't it make sense to fallback to the app determined by the file's MIME type? (In my case that would be text/x-trackerbase, which defaults to StyledEdit)
