MimeType in teams.desktop seems to be incorrect

See my post on techcommunity: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/Microsoft-Teams-is-now-available-on-Linux/bc-p/1065850/highlight/true#M4468

In order to properly open meeting links, I believe that Teams needs to register a MIME type of "x-scheme-handler/msteams" rather than "x-scheme-handler/teams".

Currently the Teams client only accepts URIs formatted as msteams://, not teams:// as the MimeType in teams.desktop would suggest. So either the MimeType needs to change, or the Teams client needs to accept teams:// URIs.

See "URI Scheme Handlers" in the Shared MIME-info spec: https://specifications.freedesktop.org/shared-mime-info-spec/shared-mime-info-spec-0.21.html#idm46078813120800

A related question: What is the suggested way to open Teams links from e.g., emails? If the MIME type is x-scheme-handler then it seems that the only way to open Teams from a web browser is to use an extension/addon to rewrite to rewrite https:// to msteams:// in all https://teams.microsoft.com URIs.
