Nick Burch commented on TIKA-661:
---------------------------------

Currently we only allow one mime type to have any given extension. Possibly we could relax
that slightly if we implement support like this

> The javadoc for the method suggest that it will return the "preferred extension" for
a MimeType. Acutally its the first Extension deserialized from tika-mimetypes.xml. The method
would have to be renamed to getFirstExtensionInList(). This pretty much points at the fact
that this method makes no sense at all. 
> There are several use-cases in which one would want to know ALL known valid extensions
for one mime type. I will submit a patch later today.
