You're right. When I change the file type options, the changes are 
written to the file "~/.local/share/applications/gedit.desktop". 
Therefore the changes should also affect nautilus.

If you want to change the settings like I described, you could install 
konqueror - if you don't mind installing lots of KDE libraries. OTOH, 
there are several lines in the .desktop file which I can't see with the 
KDE GUI, so editing the file directly may give you more freedom.
