My knowledge on this area might be outdated, but at least 3 years ago
WebKitGTK+ did rely on shared-mime-info for that. See this patch I wrote to
fix a similar (not exactly the same, though) issue related to .mhtml files:

Sounds like a plan.

As far as I remember, shared-mime-info determines the mime type out of the
file and then WebKit processe
As far as I remember, shared-mime-info determines the MIME type out of the
file and then WebKit processes that according to the initialization done in
WebCore/platform/MIMETypeRegistry.cpp, so shared-mime-info looks like the
right thing to change.

I'll comment there too.
