[lsb-discuss] Registering an application for a mimetype for all users (system-wide)

Am trying to register myapplication (by running the xdg-mime as root) for a mimetype for all users but it only registers it for root.

Command used:
$ xdg-mime default myapplication.desktop mimetype

I've also exported the variable XDG_UTILS_INSTALL_MODE=system but no effect.

The xdg-mime manual for default option says:
The default option is for use inside a desktop session only. It is not
    recommended to use xdg-mime default as root

Any help on how can I register myapplication as a default application a particular mimetype (or a set of mimetypes) for all users (system-wide)?

Thanks in advance,
