I'm not familiar with the plans, but I imagine that a mime-handler like 
Mozilla's would be great in the Bluetooth File Sharing application. :)

For instance, sending a vCard to the computer makes it display a window 
like this:

     Would you like to accept <this file> from <bluetooth device name>?

     1. Open it with the default application (<perhaps some e-mail client>)
     2. Open it with <some application> [Choose...]
     3. Save it to disk

     [x] Always show this dialog before handling files of this type

Maybe Gnome has something similar built-in?
