Fixing the Unknown media type in type 'interface/x-winamp-skin' while updating in ubuntu/debian

I think i have seen this error message while updating ubuntu/debian for years and wondered what it is and why is not solved :it's known bug but no one does nothing to fix it in debian/ubuntu/freedesktop/kde land
seems the worse idea to keep the mime types in xml format and is quite verbose for some errors

you can see the file and the package that contains it
 dpkg -S  /usr/share/mime/packages/kde.xml
kdelibs5-data: /usr/share/mime/packages/kde.xml

what i did is to delete the lines with the errors
vi /usr/share/mime/packages/kde.xml
and deleted the lines corresponding to the error

Unknown media type in type 'all/all'
Unknown media type in type 'all/allfiles'
Unknown media type in type 'uri/mms'
Unknown media type in type 'uri/mmst'
Unknown media type in type 'uri/mmsu'
Unknown media type in type 'uri/pnm'
Unknown media type in type 'uri/rtspt'
Unknown media type in type 'uri/rtspu'
Unknown media type in type 'fonts/package'
Unknown media type in type 'interface/x-winamp-skin'

and here is the diff on my debian
after that the update-mime-database worked without errors

update-mime-database -V /usr/share/mime
