Do shared-mime-info and desktop-file-utils fall into the same category

desktop-file-utils and shared-mime-info aren't run?

The latter.

Your post makes me think that some Core GNOME applications (nautilus?
gnome-panel? gnome-vfs?) make use of the data generated by
desktop-file-utils and shared-mime-info but nothing else.  Is that true
or just a guess?

Gnome in general, yes. That's why I'm arguing it should be the GNOME libs/core bits that should depend on these, not (all) individual apps.

shared-mime-info seems to run itself on installation and update but
desktop-file-utils does not.  If desktop-file-utils is made optional for
the scriptlets, the desktop-file-utils Core package should run itself on

I'm not arguing that running them should be optional, only that the additional dependancies for them not be added/Required.

(Hmm.. gtk2 doesn't run gtk-update-icon-cache on install... is
this a packaging bug?

IMO, yes.

Or perhaps this bug would resolve it:

Yes too.  (that's my bug).
