Nothing that easy. There is an incredibly wonky non-standard system based on 
See this thread if you feel curious: 

But today, I just got lucky and found a small command line program attached in 
a bug report somewhere in maemo bugzilla just for this, that could be 
distributed in the maemo deb package.
So, I could open any file with
hildon-mime-summon <file.ext> <optional-mimetype>

Now, I just need to understand how zim open files and put the command there.
