mailcap files come pretty close, but only offer detection by mime (you
couldn't for instance parse youtube-links if you wanted or
differentiate between a file:// and http://-URL).
Additionally, with mailcap you can only provide one command, whereas
soap offers you to give a whole set of commands, including piping and
other stuff. You could do that with mailcap, too, by writing a
shell-script for each handler.

Now, most importantly, what you have to consider is that mailcap isn't
called by X-programs, which soap is directed at (-> replacing xdg-open).
