This is supposed to also work the other way: with the extension NOT
installed an user click on a file of that type and PackageKit pop-up,
ask about installing the extension, do its job, the extension is
installed and the file successfully opened?
Then package-kit can't find anything, because you haven't registered the
mime-type in any desktop files, so the fact that it's supported isn't
advertised in the RPM headers.
So the short answer is that you need a desktop file.
