Curiously, MIME mappings have worked fine for everyone else so far. Or those
not using whatever it is you are using.

Well, it is. Either dh_desktop should add desktop-file-utils to misc:Depends

for a lot of packages, or dh_desktop is effectively useless unless there is
some other magic that installs desktop-file-utils for everyone.
