Seems to me that some hybrid would be a good solution: Hardcode the known types (which solves the "windows is just wrong" case) then as a default look in the registry for those that aren't hardcoded.
Therefore the hit of additional time would only be for lesser-known types.
In any case, it's pretty bad that python allows the wrong mimetype for PNG , even if it is a Windows registry issue.
