[arch-general] Packages with update-desktop-database issues

I recently found that wine doesn't run update-desktop-database
(FS#22882) but that's not the only package with this issue.
I tested all my installed packages with this command:
for i in $(grep -Rl 'MimeType=.*/.*' /usr/share/applications/*); do pkg=
$(LANG=C pacman -Qo "$i"); grep -L
update-desktop-database /var/lib/pacman/local/$(echo $pkg | cut -d\
-f5)-$(echo $pkg | cut -d\ -f6)/install; done
The result was that at least these packages don't run
update-desktop-database although they install Mime associations:
There are probably many more broken packages which I don't have
installed. I tried to get these via pkgfile but didn't succeed.
I really wonder why namcap doesn't do any checks on this.
