Yep, that's essentially the same improvement that xdg-open has over htmlview 
(and similarly for XFCE).

The first batch was done by going through packages returned 
by "repoquery --repoid=development --whatrequires --alldeps htmlview" and 
similarly for firefox and evince.  I plan to do some grepping later as for 
example repoquery might not be the best tool to find out uses of gnome-open, 
and some packages have missing dependencies (eg. to htmlview) which means 
they're not found by repoquery anyway.
