MDL-16359, I am leveraging the ability to go from icon types (roughly equivalent to portfolio formats for now) to supported mimetypes for any given format.

also changed docs to add notes about supportedformats for single file export and mime detection:
and changed all logical places to be more specific about supported formats.
