Yeah, seems to work. For the rawhide openoffice.org-javafilter rpm which
adds import filters to OOo for weird-ass small-device formats like
PocketWord and AportisDoc I tried a openoffice.org-javafilter.desktop
of...

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Name=Small Device Format Importer
Exec=openoffice.org %U
MimeType=application/x-aportisdoc;application/x-pocket-word;
NoDisplay=true

and it seemed to work just fine. Definitely made nautilus launch OOo for
those types anyway.
