> Is it more preferable to create new custom MIME types for Qt Creator plugin as "application/vnd..." than "application/x-..." or "text/x-..."?

>From a technical point of view this wouldn't matter much for Creator, so I guess it depends on what exactly is the use of the file. If it's something open that will somehow be "consumed" by your plugin, the x- subtype is probably a good idea since it's the recommendation for non-standard formats. The vnd subtype is typically for proprietary stuff.
