When the theory doesn't correspond to the real world it's the problem of 
the theory, not the world. The file managers run associated programs 
based on their extensions, not the real content. So the real world is: 
the ogg extension causes *sound* player to run. And many people prefer 
different programs to play sound and video (me too). So the "ogm" 
extension is the real solution, whatever the theory says.
