If you set the mime-type on "link" then there is no problem. Keep in
mind that "file" doesn't have to be in the repository -- the link can
point to a file outside of the repo that will never be in the repo. So
you can't always have a mime-type set on the link destination whereas
you can always set the mime-type on the link itself.

So I'm still not seeing how this is a bug.
