No, I think it is a bug. Mac OS X doesn't use MIME types for 
associating files. It uses filename extensions, and it uses resource 
information like MacOS creator codes.

I'm not aware of any other apps on Mac OS X that are like Rev: usually 
fails to bind to it's document type (.rev files). It seems the problems 
already existed & maybe just worse under Panther.
