IIRC, a type´s description (which could be long) isn´t shown anywhere else besides in FileTypes. (But it is available to other applications separately, via the BMimeType API, IIRC.) The type name (which should be short) is shown in Tracker as the Kind-attribute. When a type hasn´t got a short name, Tracker shows the raw mimetype instead. /Jonas.
