Please do not edit it by scripts. It is maintained by the desktop team,
which defines preferred applications in respect to desktop consistence
and existing contracts.

This SuSEconfig works in the way described in the comment of this file
(i. e. prefers applications with GNOME or GTK in Categories.).

gnome-defaults.conf have no influence to KDE.

Spec says exactly: There should be no priority for MIME Types in this
field, or any form of priority in the desktop file. Priority for
applications is handled external to the .desktop files.

Ask KDE team, what is the preferred way.
