How can I make QuickTime not write non-ascii mime-types to the registry?

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Mime\Database\Content Type\аудио/x-mpeg
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Mime\Database\Content Type\видео/mpeg
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Mime\Database\Content Type\видео/x-mpeg

This behaviour unexpectedly breaks other applications that legally believe that all mime type names contain only ascii characters.
