​Aaron Seigo replied to me on G+ with a few links about the current
freedesktop spec that is followed. I would forward the question about what
we want to achieve with Nepomuk:
-- Aaron comment ---
For mimetypes:
http://standards.freedesktop.org/shared-mime-info-spec/shared-mime-info-spec-latest.html

File associations are done by default using application .desktop files  and
modified using the mimeapps.list file in ~/.local/share/applications as per
http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/mime-actions-spec/

For application menus: http://standards.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/latest/

The xdg utils can  make using these systems from the application side
easier.

As for Akonadi / Nepomuk, I'm not sure what you are looking for exactly?
API to hook AOO into Akonadi / Nepomuk? If so .. if you can be a bit more
specific as to what the  needs are I can be a bit more specific in my
answer.
