I think the MIME management system would benefit from being able to handle multiple file extension per defined type instead of having to manage almost identical definitions for MIME with multiple possible file extensions.

There are very few 'duplicates' most entries have different mime types.

Just thought it was a good idea not representing the same data, or having to handle it, in more than one place.

The handling would still need to be separate, since the query that retrieves this data looks for a single extensions. If you have >1 extension per entry the process of assigning a content type and image becomes a lot slower since you now need to traverse the entries 1 at a time and involve PHP in the process.
