If you're going to set up anything to handle octet-stream data, it needs
to be something that can handle all-manner of file types (e.g. a handler
that determines file types for itself, then opens it with the
appropriate program).  Because that generic data type means "this is
some sort of binary," it could be used for JPEGs, PDFs, MP3s, even text.

Using "gnome-open" might be an appropriate handler, but I've not tested

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r
